Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal that Vincent Enyeama could be in line for an imminent transfer to French Ligue 1 side Nantes following his demotion to the reserve at fellow Ligue 1 side Lille.
Nice were at a point the front runners for his signature but Nantes have moved ahead of them in the race to sign the shot stopper who has been told by new Lille coach Marcelo Bielsa that he is not in his plans.
Enyeama and ten other senior players have been demoted to the reserve by the Argentine coach, but while the rest are still searching for possible destination Enyeama has found favour in Claudio Ranieri .
Nantes 29 year old shot stopper Remy Riou has been sold to Turkish side Gotzepe and Ranieri views 33 year old Enyeama as a like for like replacement for the departed shot stopper.
At as the point of filing in this report it’s yet to be known if a transfer fee will be demanded by Lille for his transfer as he still has two more years to run on his deal with the team he joined four seasons ago.
