Dream team star Oghenekaro Etebo is set to complete a move to Portuguese side Clube Desportivo Feirense in the next 24 hours.
Warri Wolves have suggested Etebo is very much still with them but Etebo’s agent Endurance Ogbemudia says delay in getting a visa is what is delaying his client’s move to the Segenda Liga side.
The agent said the player has singed a two-and-a-half-year deal with his new club will all the proper documentation.
The U-23 striker had been linked with possible moves to Esperance and CS Sfaxien in Tunisia and Ismaily in Egypt.
Ogbemudia told Goal.com: “Etebo is still expecting his visa from the Portuguese embassy, by the grace of God if the visa comes out he’ll travel to Portugal.
“He has already signed a two-and -a-half year contract effective January 10, 2016 to June 30, 2018. The deal is 99.99 percent concluded, CD Feirense have all documentations.”
“One of the major reasons Etebo rejected those offers is that the owner of Feirense had a long chat with him and told him of his plans for the club.
“The offer from Feirense was more realistic than the other options available. He explained that he wants to bring the club to limelight by signing Nigerian stars.
“They want to gain promotion to the elite division at the end of this season, Kunle Soname is truthful to his words,” Ogbemudia concluded.
Etebo won the MVP award at the Africa Under-23 Cup of Nations last December.
He was also named him the Most Promising Talent in Africa early last month by CAF at the 2015 Glo-CAF awards.
