2016 Nigerian Footballer of the Year, Chisom Egbuchulam is set to line up with Rangers International Football Club this Sunday evening after his dream move to Etoile du Sahel and Club Africain fell through, reports Sportstalkafrica.com.
Coach Imama Amapakabo will give Egbuchulam chance to reclaim his place in the squad after negotiations with the two North African clubs and Rangers International collapsed.
The Flying Antelopes have now said they will not freeze out the unsettled forward after his transfer fell through.
The club’s top scorer last season resumed training on Saturday (Yesterday) with his teammates in Enugu ahead of the game against El-kanemi Warriors.
Egbuchulam scored sixteen (16) NPFL goals for Rangers who emerged NPFL champions after a 32-years trophy-less streak.
“Egbuchulam is back and he trained with the team yesterday in Enugu ahead of the game against El-kanemi Warriors,” a source inside the Rangers camp confirmed to Sportstalkafrica.com.
“Both deals to Etoile du Sahel and Club Africain fell through due to the fact that both clubs were not ready to discuss serious business. He is arguably the best player in the Nigeria Professional Football League and you have to pay a reasonable fee for us. He is a top professional player, he is sharp and fit but I am not sure he will be listed for today’s (Sunday) game. He might need more days to blend with the coaches program, but we are happy to have him back to the team.”
