Lobi, 3SC in close race for Richard Ocheayi

The net minder has put the decision on his next transfer in the hands of his representatives after two traditional clubs are in battle royale for his signature
Former Enyimba and Kaduna United goaltender, Richard Ocheayi is wanted man by two NPL clubs, 3SC of Ibadan and Lobi Stars Goal.com can report.

Ocheayi left the Aba side after a season but both the Oluyole Warriors and Makurdi club have made the Benue born goalie their transfer target and are at each others' throat to snap up the dark skinned goalkeeper.

When Goal.com contacted Ocheayi he confirmed the interest of both clubs in his services but said he has left the choice of his final destination in the hands of his representatives and would abide with which club they advised him to choose owing to the ongoing discussions between them and a foreign club.

Ocheayi said: "I know that both Lobi Stars and 3SC of Ibadan have approached me to play for them. Both of them are serious about it and I am bit confused on the choice to make.

"I have left that in the hands of my representatives and advisors and I will agree with the decision they will take based on other reasons which includes their ongoing discussion with a foreign club about me.

"I will do my best with any club they decided that I should sign for and I am ready to make another mark with any of the teams," Ocheayi said.

Ocheayi was the Kaduna United goalkeeper during the club maiden appearance in the CAF Confederation Cup in 2011 and joined Enyimba last season where they came fourth in the NPL.
