Exclusive - Nurudeen Orelesi: FC Kryvbas Offered Me A Two - Year ContractFinally, former Nigeria youth - teamer and Skënderbeu Korçë midfielder Nurudeen Orelesi has chosen to break his silence to allnigeriasoccer.com since reports surfaced in Albania that he was rebelling at the Super League champions following their failure to sanction his transfer to FC Kryvbas, Ukraine.

A product of ECO FC, Lagos, Orelesi had also attracted interest from clubs in Poland and Germany in the winter transfer market but the hierarchy at  Skënderbeu Korçë failed to sanction his transfer. Instead, there is a proposal of a contract extension from club management.

''I tested with Jahn Regensburg in Germany last week. But I don't think this is the right move for me now, the team is last in the second division table.

''FC Kryvbas offered me a two - year contract. At the same time, my club want me to extend my contract by an additional two years. The disagreement started after I refused their offer. I can only sign a one - year deal,'' Orelesi told allnigeriasoccer.com.

The want - away midfielder, who can also be handy in defense, has been frozen out of the first team and won't be reinstated until he settles his differences with the president of Skënderbeu Korçë.

''I am still discussing the problem of contract extension with the president of my club(Ardian Takaj, ed). They want me to sign a new contract. And that is why I missed the cup game earlier in the week. Our league resumes today but I can't play because I have accumulated three yellow cards,'' he said.

 Orelesi's contract with Skënderbeu Korçë expires in June, 2013. The club won't allow him depart Southern Albania for less than 500,000 euros in transfer fee.
