Vincent Enyeama going back to Israel to join Maccabi Tel Aviv

The Nigerian international goalkeeper is going back to Israel to resuscitate his stalled club career

Vincent Enyeama, Super Eagles goalkeeper is in Israel about to undergo a medical with the aim of joining Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv on loan from Lille of France.

Enyeama joined Lille in the 2010/11 season but has not been in action for the former Ligue 1 champions though he played in the Cup and the Champions League – a total of three appearances in two seasons. Enyeama has not confirmed or denied the move.

“My coach told me that it is better for me to find a club where I play,” Enyeama told Israeli newspaper Walla.

“Nothing is closed yet, my agent handles all matters,” he added.

If he joins Maccabi Tel Aviv, it will be Enyeama's second sojourn in Israel where he made name as a scoring goalkeeper. At his former Israeli club, Hapoel Tel Aviv, he kept goal for 113 games in the league and scored eight goals.

Maccabi Tel Aviv are expected to pay 300, 000 Euros (N60 million) to Lille to secure him on a season-long loan deal and there is an option for renewal of the contract when it expires at the end of the 2012/13 season.
