NFF To Investigate Emem Eduok Transfer Debacle

Dolphins FC striker Emem Eduok is in trouble after allegedly signing for both Norwegian club Sarpsborg 08 and Tuisian giants Esperance in the same month.

The top Glo Premier League marksman, who scored 20 goals last season, reportedly penned a four-year deal with Sarpsborg 08 in mid-December having informed the Norwegian club that his economic rights were owned by A&B Academy.

He later traveled to Tunis with full backing of Dolphins FC management to pen a three-and-a-half-year contract with Esperance.

“That is a shame and should not happen,” NFF President Amaju Pinnick told reporters. “We will investigate this matter and come up with recommendations. Whoever is found culpable will have questions to answer.”

Eduok, who played on loan for Dolphins last season, risks Fifa suspension for at least three months if found guilty of double dealing with the latter club despite having an existing contract with Sarpsborg 08.

The striker has since arrived at the Super Eagles’ B Team camp ahead of an international friendly with Cote d’Ivoire and Sudan later this month.
