The People’s Elephant have shot into the lead in the race to sign the Go Round captain

Enyimba are primed to add Nelson Esor to their rank ahead of next soccer season but they face serious competition from MFM, Sunshine Stars, and Yobe Desert Stars.

Esor was very forceful for Go Round last season in their debut campaign in the Nigeria Professional Football League last season.

The midfielder, who doubles as the skipper of Go Round disclosed that he has got serious transfer offer from Enyimba but that there are three clubs who have shown the desire to have him on their payroll if the People’s Elephant fails to act.

“I am looking forward to a move to Enyimba but it has not been concluded just yet because I am still under contract with Go Round and as it now, I am still their player,” Esor told Goal.

“I have discussed terms with them and I think everything is going well but any further delay could lead to a serious threat to the deal being wrapped up because I have other clubs that have shown interest in me. They are also serious but I know what I want and how to go about it.

“I believe that everything should be sorted before the end of the week. I want to move to the next stage of my career and I believe I am in the right direction.”

Esor scored four league goals for Go Round last season and had several assists to ensure that the Rivers State club remained in the top flight at the end of last season.
