Eduok Tells Why He Backed Out of Sarpsborg Deal

Nigeria international Emem Eduok says he backed out of the move to Norwegian club Sarpsborg 08 because Dolphins FC did not approve of the transfer.

Eduok has now signed a three-and-a-half-year deal worth €300,000 with Tunisian giants Esperance, but questions have been raised concerning his previous penmanship with Sarpsborg 08.

Speaking to, the Nigerian confirmed he had previously signed for the Norwegian club, but said he pulled out of the contract because he could not procure transfer documents to play for the club.

Eduok explained; “I have played the last three or four season with Dolphins and am a Dolphins player. It would be wrong for me to go behind them and sign a deal. If I do that who would give me my ICT to move?

“I will not lie, I signed for the Norwegian club, but I opted out because the agent didn’t get the blessing of my club. I hear he said I am A&B Academy player, No! I have been with Dolphins in the last four seasons.”

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has began probing into the transfer debacle involving one of the brightest prospect from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
