Oluwaniyi Finally Seals Shooting Stars’ Deal

Goalkeeper Segun Oluwaniyi has finally completed his switch from Dolphin Football Club to Ibadan side, Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC), on Wednesday evening.
It is understood that the General Manager of Shooting Stars, Mutiu Adepoju, met with the Dolphin FC manager, Stanley Eguma, after their clubs clashed in a Week Two encounter last Saturday at the Liberty Stadium to discuss the future of the goalkeeper.
Last season, Oluwaniyi was sent on loan to Shooting Stars from Dolphin FC for the fee of N1 million but the deal was made permanent on Wednesday when both clubs agreed on a fee believed to be in the region of between N2 million and N2.5 million.
When spoke to Oluwaniyi on his permanent move from Port Harcourt to Ibadan, he thanked the management of Dolphin FC for allowing him cross to his hometown.
He added in his excitement that he could not wait to take part in his first game of the season in the ongoing campaign of the Globacom Premier League.
“I am really happy that the deal over my move to Shooting Stars has been settled and now I can play for the club this season after missing their first game in Ibadan. I am really grateful to Dolphin that they didn’t make the deal difficult for my new club and I will continue to thank them for their attitude in making sure that I can return to the league in time,” the former Enugu Rangers’ shot-stopper said.
Spokesman of Dolphin FC, China Acheru, also confirmed on Wednesday to that the deal was bound to sail through without any hitch since the selling club has a good relationship with the buying side.
But he could not confirm the actual amount Dolphin FC would be receiving for selling the goalkeeper, who was once a target of five-time Premier League champion, Enyimba.
