Higly rated Daniel kept goal for the Nigeria U-23 team that won bronze at the Rio 2016 Olympics and has also trained with the Nigeria senior national team, and he is presently preparing with Nigeria Champions Enugu Rangers ahead of their campaign in the CAF Champions League.
The Enugu Rangers shot stopper gave his reaction to recent reports linking him to the CAF Champions League and Premier South Africa League kings in a chat with Owngoalnigeria.com, from the camp of Enugu Rangers in Benin City, Edo State.
” I was told of the interest by close friends and teammates but am yet to be contacted officially. I heard they contacted Rangers but since I resumed have not been told a thing by anybody” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” I must confess there was contact between me and a Nigerian agent based in South Africa but that was a long time ago, way before the Olympics and since then we have not talked”.
