CHAN Eagles forward, Christian Obiozor, may debut for Enyimba of Aba in the team’s week 10 match. Obiozor is understood to be on the verge of sealing his dream move to the club.

He joined Kano Pillars before the start of the season but contractual differences border on financial terms forced the player to part ways with the league title holders.

But his desire to play for the six-time domestic champions, Enyimba, suffered setbacks following Pillars’ insistence that it was unprofessional for a player to walk out on his club on the  excuse that he has not been paid.

Sources in Enyimba’s camp revealled that Obiozor is close to completing his switch.

“What we need here at Enyimba is a quality finisher, a striker who can convert the least scoring chance and Obiozor fits that bill,” offers an official of Enyimba.

“We’re pursuing his clearance with vigour; what remains now is a few things. Pillars has to sign and we are hopeful this could be done before the (transfer) window closes.”

Obiozor was a member of the home based Eagles that won bronze  last year’s CHAN in Cape Town, South Africa.

He scored two goals in the tournament, which Nigeria participated for the first time.
