Al Masry frustrates Jude Aneke's Turkish deal

The former Warri Wolves' striker was denied by his Egyptian club on the winter transfer deadline day
Nigeria Premier League (NPL) All time leading scorer, Jude Aneke has rued the decision of his Egyptian club, Al Masry not to allow him go on a short loan deal to Turkish side Kocaelispor.

Aneke whose last club in Nigeria was Warri Wolves signed for Al Masry last April but has not been involved in any competitive game owing to the post crowd violence saga which was resolved only few days ago.

He was loaned to another Egyptian club, El Dakhleya after Al Masry was barred from participating in this season's soccer league  owing to their involvement in the impasse but with lack of competitive actions Aneke opined that the first few months were a bit cagey for him.

The Enugu born striker whose 20 goals two seasons ago is still unequalled in the NPL said he wanted the move to Turkey for him to get his game back on track and save him from match rustiness and boredom.

Explaining the rationale behind Al Masry insistence to have him remain in Egypt, Aneke disclosed:"I know the reason why Al Masry wanted me in Egypt. They didn't want me to go out of the country because they won't be able to keep an eye on me.
"They didn't even listen to the offer from Kocaelispor at all. They waved it off and said the Egyptian league has started. I don't have any reason to complain about match rustiness again."

Aneke has since left for Egypt after sorting his travel documents which is billed to expire February this year. He is to spend this season with El Dakhleya, another first division side.
