Ouziel has transferred several Nigerian players to Israel in the last 12 months and Ibe could join the long list, if he passes the trial with the youth side of the team who are eyeing promotion to the first league, where the main team currently campaigns.

He is expected to boost their chances of promotion , as it is part of the reasons why he was snapped up by the ambitious Isreali team.
