Enyimba FC of Aba forward Christian Obiazor won’t be joining Isreali side Kiryat Shmona, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
Obiazor was supposed to spend a week with the Israeli side but the forward failed to pass the medical tests he underwent today, ahead of his first training session with the team tomorrow.
A deal has already been agreed with Enyimba for Obiazor to join Kiryat Shmona on loan for a reported fee of €50,000, with the option to buy the forward next summer for €100,000.
However the forward was was carrying an injury which his agent Yomi Itshekure tried to hide in order to pull the deal through, after hijacking the deal from the Israeli agent who initiated the deal.
The Kiryat Shmona deal was initiated by an Israeli agent who pulled all the stops to make the deal work and wasn’t dettered even when he discovered that the CHAN 2014 forward lied that he is a free agent.
Yomi, allegedly appeared from the blues to lay claim as the bonafide agent of the forward, who also didn’t help matters as his desperation to move abroad saw him hand a transfer mandate to a Greek agent who also tried to get involve in the botched deal.
Kiryat Shmona endured all of the drama regarding his true representative but his failed medical test forced them to pull the plug on the deal.
