Peter Eneji of Plateau United is expected to jet to Spanish La Liga side Villarreal immediately after the CHAN in Morocco.
Throughout the CHAN Eneji only had the chance of playing in the yesterday final against the Atlas Lions of Morocco, but no thanks to a niggling ankle injury.
However, Villarreal have been tracking the Plateau United star right from the sub-regional WAFU Cup in Ghana in September.
“He was to have gone over to Villarreal, but for the CHAN,” a source informed SCORENigeria
“He will now go over there after the competition to possibly agree a move in the summer.”
The 19-year-old Eneji made his NPFL debut last season and crowned it with Plateau United clinching a first-ever championship.
He could now miss Plateau United’s CAF Champions League debut later this month.
