Highly rated Nigeria youth international Chidera Ejike failed to make his debut for Norwegian side Valerenga last weekend as he is yet to be issued a work permit.
Ejike popularly referred to as Nigerian Iniesta was not listed for action when Valerenga got their league campaign underway with a 1-0 win over Viking.
The former Liverpool trainee who joined the team one month is expected to get his papers according to popular Kaduna based journalist Mohammed Mowiz Suleiman.
” He is yet to get his work permit, that was why he wasn’t listed for the game against Viking. He will most likely get it during the course of this week. To be more realistic, let’s say next week”, Mowiz told Owngoalnigeria.com.
