Super Eagles goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa was caught on camera undergoing medicals with Nigeria Processional Football League campaigners Kastina United.
The former Enyimba goalie also had the company of former Abia Warriors Winger Sheriff Bashir during the assessment at a medical facilities at the kastina-based outfit.
At the end of the exercise, while Ezenwa’s contract was not revealed, Bashir agreed personal terms and signed a 3-year contract that will keep him at the club until 2021 .
Interestingly, before undergoing the routine medical with Katsina United, Ezenwa disclosed in an interview on Brila Sports FM, the shot-stopped confimed he was leaving the People’s Elephant in search of regular football.
“I needed to play regularly. It’s a very important decision in my career,” Ezenwa stressed.
“Although I had a good time at Enyimba but as a player you have your decisions to make and I’ve taken the decision to play for Katsina United.
“The deal has not been done but Ikechukwu Ezenwa is there to play for Katsina United in 2019,” the shot-stopper noted, even as he was quick to add.
“There is a possibility to play in Europe, it’s just a (verbal) discussion that I had with them (Katsina United) that they’re interested in having me play for them and I said yes, I’m going to play for them.
“A man must have a plan B. As I’m talking to you Ikechukwu Ezenwa is a free agent and I’m looking forward to moving on with my career in Europe and I know that if I’m to play in the NPFL in 2019, it has to be for Katsina United,” Ezenwa said during the interview monitored on Brila FM
