The details of Ebimobowei’s contract has yet to be released but it is understood the Port-Harcourt side finalized the move on the last week of 2014, beating top Glo Premier League sides, Enyimba, Warri Wolves and Abia Warriors to the striker’s penmanship.

Ebimobowei, who scored 18 goals to emerge third leading scorer in the 2013-14 league seasons, has been immediately registered by Dolphins for the 2015 Caf Confederation Cup. He is believed to a perfect replacement for Emem Eduok, who is believed to have joined Tunisian giants Esperance.
