No Wydad Deal For Chikatara – Inyama

Emeka Iyama, the Abia Warriors chairman, has disclosed that striker, Chisom Chikatara’s proposed move to Wydad Casablanca is all but dead with his club claiming the Moroccans have not met their financial obligations.

The Abia Warriors striker was set to complete a move the Moroccan club in June, after agreeing terms in February, but he will not be joining Wydad as earlier expected, because it is yet to pay his transfer fee to Warriors, according to club chairman, Emeka Inyama.

“Chisom Chikatara’s deal with Wydad Casablanca is on hold because the club has failed to meet up with their financial obligations,” Inyama told

“We are a very serious club and we don’t do things haphazardly, so that is the reason why he isn’t moving there yet,” Inyama added.

It remains unclear if Wydad will go forward with the transfer, as it is now in group A of the CAF Champions League.

Chikatara, 21, scored four goals for Nigeria at the 2016 African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Rwanda in 2015, and was tipped for big things.

He has since suffered injuries and has failed to show the form that earned him a place in the Super Eagles and almost earned him a deal abroad.
