Granada CF striker Isaac Success is expected to join up with the Flying Eagles in the coming week.
Earlier request for the player’s timely release for the Nigeria U-20 side African Youth Championship (AYC) second round qualification tie in Tanzania was ignored.
But secretary to the nation’s cadet team Auwal Aliyu Ibrahim says a formal contact with the La Liga outfit have been initiated.
“Coach Manu has asked that that Success join the rest of the squad in Kaduna as soon as he arrives Nigeria on holiday,” Aliyu Ibrahim is quoted as saying on AfricanFootball.com.
Granada are facing relegation battle, sitting just two points clear of the drop zone. They will be up against fellow relegation strugglers Real Valladolid on Sunday in the final game of the season. Sunday’s Primera Division clash is a must win for both clubs.
The Flying Eagles are scheduled to host the Ngorongoro Heroes on Saturday, May 24, at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna.
