Kennedy Chinwo begins trials in Singapore

The Dolphins of Port Harcourt defender has started the journey that may likely see him move to the Asian nation

Former U-20 star Kennedy Chimezie Chinwo has begun his three weeks trials with Singapore S.League side, DPMM, the Nigerian has revealed.

Chinwo presently plays for Dolphins of Port Harcourt in the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) but would become a player of the Brunei club if he impresses during the test games that would be arranged for him.

Chinwo informed that he jetted to Singapore on the 21st of November and would train with the club for three weeks before the club's management would decide on his fate.

The defender however assures all will be well at the end of the test with DPMM expressing that he will do everything within reach to ensure he gets a contract based on his experience and track record.

"I am optimistic that a deal will be sealed at the end of my trials. I have the quality and the wherewithal not only to play here but to play anywhere,” Chinwo told

"The management of the club will decide my fate in two weeks time but I am not bothered at all because I know it is only a matter of time before the contract papers would be offered to me to sign them," said the defender who was part of the Nigeria U20 team that got to the final of the 2005 Fifa Youth Championships.

Chinwo is the second high profile Nigerian being linked with a move to Singapore after the NPL highest goals scorer for 2011/2012 season Sibi Gwar recently declared interest in a switch to the Asian nation.

DPMM are based in oil-rich Brunei but compete in the Singapore top flight.
