MFM FC are in talks with forwards, Abu Azeez and Victor Mbaoma as they intensify search for a replacement for their former striker, Stephen Odey. Media officer of the club, Olawale Quadry disclosed this to newsmen.
Odey, who finished as the Olukoya Boys’ top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) last season with eighteen goals left the club to pitch tent with Switzerland outfit, FC Zurich a week before the end of the campaign.
The Lagos-based outfit who finished in second position in the NPFL last term and will campaign in the CAF Champions League for the first time next year, are looking to secure the services of Azeez and Mbaoma to fill Odey’s position.
Quadry said Azeez and Victor have proved their worth in the NPFL and the club will do all it can to secure their services. Azeez, famous for his exploits with the Nigeria beach soccer team, Super Sand Eagles, is a free agent following the expiration of his contract with relegated Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan, while Mbaoma featured for another relegated team, Remo Stars last season.
