Relieved Abduwaheed Afolabi Happy To Join GabalaNew Gabala FK signing Abdulwaheed Afolabi hopes to join his new teammates this weekend.

Earlier this week, it was announced that the Nigeria youth - international had signed a one - year contract with the Azeri Premier League club.

Afolabi last played for FC Kuban Krasnodar in Russia, but left there under a cloud in March after he was banished to the youth team despite signing a first team contract.

''I am happy to sign this contract with Gabala . I hope to do well with this team and target trophies when the championship resumes.

''There were offers for me to continue my career with clubs in Ukraine and Russia but I think it is better for me to leave that environment for a new destination.

''I joined Gabala as a free agent. The problems I had with Kuban were resolved before I signed for Gabala,'' Abdulwaheed Afolabi told in a telephone conversation.

The striker, who previously represented Niger Tornadoes and Tavriya, played only 2 first team games for Kuban before both parties ended their collaboration.
