The 25-year-old centre back has dismissed speculation linking him with a move away from the Smurfs

Lokomotiv Plovdiv defender Stephen Eze has rubbished reports linking him with a move to another Bulgarian club.

The Nigeria international joined Lokomotiv Plovdiv in January 2018 from Kano Pillars, going on to make 46 appearances for the Smurfs.

Following what was an impressive debut campaign in Europe for Eze, rumours began to spread of a potential move away from the Bulgarian Cup holders to another local outfit, something the 25-year-old has now come out to address on Instagram.

“Lately I have been hearing rumours about a potential move to another club in Bulgaria,” he said.

“All I say to all these false stories is that my entire focus is to help Lokomotiv Plovdiv to be the best club in Bulgaria.

“My focus is 100 percent. Every time I put on that jersey I’ll give everything to help the club win.

“The love and support I have received from the club, and most importantly from the fans and supporters is absolutely tremendous!

“My loyalty remains with Loko!”
