The excitement that greeted the invitation of FC Ifeanyi Ubah defender Olamilekan Adeleye to the Super Eagles as a player from the Nigeria Profesional Football League has been simmered down following confirmation that he is no longer a player of FC Ifeanyi Ubah.
Adeleye’s contract with the Nigerian side has expired and he is now a free player with reports linking the defender who impressed for the B team of Nigeria at the WAFU Championship with a move to Belgium.
Owngoalnigeria.com gathered that he refused to sign an extension to his deal with the Nnewi based side as he currently among the players yet to be paid their outstanding salaries from last season.
He is reportedly owed as much as eight months of unpaid salaries from last season and that has further made him to be hell bent on quitting FCIU for a new adventure possibly in Europe.
Named as one of the home based defenders in the squad of the senior national team of Nigeria for the games against South Africa and Uganda, he could be a foreign based player immediately after the games later this month.
