No truth in reports that Super Eagles goalkeeper Okoye is in talks with OGC Nice can exclusively inform that reports claiming that French Ligue 1 team OGC Nice have a opened a line of communication with Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper Maduka Okoye over a transfer in the near future are wide of the mark.

The Sparta Rotterdam glovesman has been linked already with many European teams but there have not been any negotiations with OGC Nice or any other club, amid speculation in the local and foreign press that the player's agent is in southern France to thrash out a deal with his suitors.

Okoye is now looked after by former Feyenoord midfielder Wessel Weezenberg, who also handles the affairs of Super Eagles fullback Tyronne Ebuehi and Sparta Rotterdam striker of Nigerian descent Emanuel Emegha.

On the back of his excellent performances in 2020-2021, Sparta Rotterdam extended Okoye's contract in August and they are hoping to make a tidy profit if he is sold before June 2025.

The German-born goalie played for the youth teams of Bayer Leverkusen and Fortuna Düsseldorf prior to his transfer to Sparta Rotterdam in July 2020.

Okoye kept his sixth clean sheet in a Nigeria jersey as the Super Eagles defeated Central African Republic 2-0 in a 2022 World Cup qualifier on Sunday.
