Foreign Clubs Swoop on NPL StarA number of foreign clubs including top French and Vietnamese clubs are scrambling for the signature of Heartland starlet Fidelis Izuchukwu Anozie.

The 20-year star who was sourced from a non-league side in Lagos is seriously attracting attention from Vietnam, the fast-growing league in the South-East Asia, which is also turning the Mecca of Nigerian players.

Anozie, whose brother signed a contract recently with a Maltese club, is described as a modern midfielder with a good height to complement his combative approach on the pitch. There are strong indications which suggest that the unnamed Vietnamese club could win the signature of the talented six-foot plus lad.

The Lagos-born striker, who also played in the youth teams of top NPL sides including Lobi Stars and Kano Pillars, is confident he will make the move soon, saying that his agent is working very hard to get his dream move abroad off the ground.

“I could be jetting out soon and I can tell you that my agent is on top of the move and I’m very confident of signing a contract,” he said.

“I’m in top shape and the season has been great for me. I’m looking forward to continue playing abroad and I can’t wait to be on the move.”

The lad, who models his game after the great Cameroon striker Samuel Eto’O Fils, reckons it will not be long before his name is on the lips of soccer watchers.

“My aim is to wear the national colours of Nigeria and I have always dreamt about it since I was a kid doing a kick about in the streets.

“I hope my dreams will come very soon.”
