Spanish La-Liga giants Barcelona have informed Enyimba that they won’t be making Ezekiel Bassey deal permanent when his loan expires in few months time.

Barcelona signed the Nigerian forward on a season long loan from Enyimba, with the option of making the deal permanent in the summer based on his success with the B team of the La-Liga side.

Bassey however failed to live up to expectations, with work permit issues and injuries denying him the chance to feature in league games for the B team, but he did play in a friendly game against a team from Malawi.

Presently out with a shoulder injury, Barcelona have already informed Enyimba that they won’t be taking up the option of making the deal permanent in the summer when his loan deal expires.

As exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com few weeks ago, Bassey failed to make the most of his time at the club, as he failed to impress the technical crew during training in tactical and technical drills.
