The impending transfer of hot in demand Nigerian central defender Pius Udeme Junior to Rio Ave as exclusively reported by this portal won’t be as swift as claimed in the reports.
Udeme has attracted interested from top teams in Portugal due to his outstanding showing for Sajonense, where he ended up after leaving FC Porto.
His adviser in reaction to the exclusive posted by this portal, said talks for the defender who has made 36 appearances this season are still ongoing, insisting that nothing is agreed yet.
” Maybe Junior was quoted out of context, he probably didn’t understand when I said Rio Ave are in for him. For now talks are yet to reach the stage of any official announcement, but just like you rightly mentioned next week will be key to his next destination “, he told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” He (Junior) has earned himself the move to a team playing in a league higher than where he is now. But still I insist we will know more next week”.
