Tunisian giants Esperance unveil Emem Eduok

After settling disputes surrounding his transfer, the former Dolphins forward has been unveiled by the Tunis-based outfit

Former African champions Esperance Sportive de Tunis have unveiled their new Nigerian signing Emem Eduok.

Eduok had been locked in a saga following claims by a Norwegian outfit, Sarpsborg 08 that the Nigerian already had a pre-contract agreement with them and threatened to report the case to Fifa for punishment.

He was unveiled alongside new signings Hatem Bejaoui and Magno Cruz. Eduok, whose contract spans till June 30, 2018, has been handed jersey number 21.

"I'm here to help win the Champions League and national titles. I would do my best to achieve these goals,” Eduok said during the unveiling ceremony.

Esperance coach Khaled Ben Yahia said the club signed the Nigerian because he is able to play in the attack as well as on the wings.

In the thick of the storm over the contract saga, Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick ordered Eduok out of the Super Eagles camp to avoid distraction with chairman of Technical and Development Committee, Chief Felix Anyansi-Agwu asked to conduct an investigation into the matter.

He was later asked to return to the natonal team camp after investigations were concluded.

Eduok scored 21 goals in the NPFL last season for Dolphins.
