Head coach of newly promoted German Bundesliga side Hannover 96 Horst Heldt has confirmed the club have been offered the chance to sign Super Eagles forward Olarewaju Kayode who plays for Austrian side Austria Wien.
Coach of Hannover 96 Heldt while confirming the interest of his team in the striker who scored 24 goals last season however lamented the fact that the player’s price tag and on pitch behaviour makes any potential deal unlikely.
” Kayode is very popular in Austria when it comes to having arguments with referees and opponents. He has what we need because he is very fast. But the 5 million euros his team are demanding is too much for us to pay”, Heldt said.
Kayode was voted the best player in the Austria League last season, where he also won the top scorer award. His fine form earned him international recognition as he made three senior national team appearance for Nigeria .
The 24 year old has been linked with a move away from the Austrian side, and coach of the team even confirmed the forward was excused from their Europa league games as he is not in the best physical and mental form to play now.
