Much Ado About Nurudeen Orelesi

Much Ado About Nurudeen OrelesiFormer Nigeria youth - teamer Nurudeen Orelesi tested with Jahn Regensburg just before the close of the transfer window.

Though he impressed the management of the relegation threatened 2 Bundesliga club at the end of trials, Skënderbeu Korçë failed to reach an agreement with the German club on a transfer fee.

To enhance Orelesi's chances of breaking into the National Team, the 23 - year - old's priority is to take his trade to a top league.

The transfer market  remains open in Ukraine, where the player is said to be attracting interest. FC Kryvbas have made enquires on his availability and have tested the resolve of the Albanian champions to hold on to their prized jewel by lodging a bid of 150,000 euros. That initial bid was rejected by Skënderbeu Korçë.

According to Panorama Sport, Orelesi, who cut his footballing teeth with the famous ECO FC, Lagos, is angling for a move away from Skënderbeu Korçë and has clashed with the President of the club, Ardian Takaj.

On Sunday, Orelesi did not show up for training and had to be forced before he joined the rest of his teammates for the workout led by coach Mirel Josa. It is very likely that the want-away midfielder will be fined by the management of Skënderbeu Korçë for breaking the internal regulations of the club.

The bickering does not end there as the President of ECO FC, who owned the rights of Orelesi before he transferred to Albania,  has threatened to take Skënderbeu Korçë to football's regulator Fifa for failing to pay the player's transfer fee.
