Abubakar Bukola Saraki (ABS) FC defender Chinedu Ajanah has told www.aclsports.com that his club will lose many of its top talents following their relegation at the end of the 2016/17 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.
Ajanah is one of the team’s highly rated stars and earned an invite to Nigeria’s home based Super Eagles as they bid to qualify for next year’s African Nations Championships.
“Of course I hope to play for an NPFL club next season. I try my best anytime I’m on the pitch. I try to improve my game every day and playing in the highest league will help me more,” said Ajanah.
Ajanah will not go further to disclose the offers available for him but assured there are clubs looking for his signature.
“Everything is going on well. To be sincere there are offers but I can’t disclose them for now. Everything will be clear soon,” he added.
Earlier in the month, ABS coach Henry Makinwa had expressed fears that his team may lose as much as eleven players as they prepare for life in the second division. Ajanah seem to agree with his coach’s assertion.
“To be sincere, the team will lose many players. As you can see, we have good players and many NPFL teams will not allow these players go to the NNL.
“They (NPFL clubs) will come and buy those players off so the club must start recruiting for the NNL,” he concluded.
The FIFA TMS which signals the start of transfer dealings among NPFL clubs for 2017/18 season has started on September 14 and is expected to run till November 14.
