Ex Enyimba of Aba forward Ezekiel Bassey who was on loan at Barcelona B last season isn’t having the best of time at Iranian side Paykan following his move in September.
Last season Bassey missed out on a big chance to earn a permanent deal with Spanish giants Barcelona after failing to make an impression in a six months loan spell at the club.
The club turned down the option to make his loan move permanent in the summer, and he returned back to Enyimba without a single appearance for the B team of the team who were then campaigning in the third division in Spain.
Bassey moved to Paykan of Iran upon his return from Spain, but the move isn’t working out as planned as he has only played once since joining the team five months ago.
Paykan are 4th on the log in Iran after 25 round of matches and 21 year old has only played once this season, and he lasted just 14 minutes in the game which was their 2-0 win over Siah Jamegan on the 28th of September last year.
Although Owngoalnigeria.com is still unclear if he is injured or not, sources close to the club however revealed that his deal could be terminated at the end of the season for poor performance.
Meanwhile, the other Nigerian at the club Kenneth Ikechukwu has played 12 games this season, and has scored twice following his transfer form Egyptian side El-Sharqiya around same time as Bassey. 24 year old Ikechukwu started his career at Egyptian side Ismaily.
