Espanyol To Approach Monaco To Sign Elderson Echiejile


Super Eagles and Monaco left full back Elderson Echiejile is reportedly on the wanted list of Spanish La-Liga side Espanyol according to various sources.

Echiejile has been at Monaco since making a January move to the French side in 2014, with 38 appearances and one goal to his name in three and half season.

The 28 year old is yet to make a single appearance for the French side this season, as he has fallen down the pecking order, a situation which could make his transfer to Espanyol possible.

Since moving to Europe in 2008 from Bendel Insurance, he raked up a total of 131 appearances with 6 goals from his role as a defender.

He has turned out for French side Rennes, Portuguese side Sporting Braga before his move to French side Monaco.
