Heartland defender Kingsley Udoh has no plans to dump the Naze Millionaires any time soon after the players proposed move to Colombia fell through a close ally of the player has disclosed.
The former FIFA U-17 World Cup winner with the 2007 Golden Eaglets' class was billed to join Illavenaros, a second division side in Colombia but the club's failure to match his wage demands and the stigma of playing in the less glamorous division made Udoh to give his going a second thought.
Udoh had initially left Nigeria to train with Uruguayan champions Penarol late last year but no details was given on why the former U-23 assistant skipper couldn't secure a contract before his proposed move to Colombia hits airwaves.
"Kingsley is not joining any Colombia club. He will remain with Heartland until he gets a lucrative club abroad because the Colombia couldn't afford his money and moreover they are a second division side. He doesn't fancy himself going as low as that division in a South American country," the source said.
Udoh was in the Naze Millionaires squad that recently won the Kano pre season tournament after two wins(over Kano Pillars and Lobi Stars) and a draw against Enugu Rangers. It was a tourney organised for Nigerian clubs on the continent this year.
