Sunday Mba to continue 'loan' stay at Enugu Rangers

The midfielder has come to an agreement with parent club Warri Wolves over his contractual rights and will stay with the Flying Antelopes pending a move to Europe

Midfielder Sunday Mba will continue to play at Enugu Rangers on loan following an agreement with parent club Warri Wolves on Monday.

In a release by Wolves, the 25-year-old “has fully accepted that Warri Wolves has full control of his “CONTRACTUAL RIGHTS”.”

Despite Rangers’ inability to meet with the terms of transfer agreed to with Wolves after the Nigeria Football Federation’s intervened in the crisis, the Seasiders have opted to allow Mba stay in the Coal City in order to give him access “to play at the highest possible level and in the highest profile competitions.”

Wolves’ media officer Moses Etu said that “we have agreed to allow [Mba] to continue to play for Rangers pending his inevitable move to a club abroad.

"We wish to say that this loan move to Rangers International does not have any financial obligation attached to it because we believe in our way of doing things professionally," the statement concluded.

Mba, who scored Nigeria’s winning goal at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, has been in the middle of a tussle over his contract between Enugu Rangers and Warri Wolves since the tournament ended in February.
