New Heartland goalie reveals Enyimba snub

Goalkeeper Bassey Akpan has disclosed that he had to make a last-ditch decision on his future by choosing to sign for Heartland Football Club over Nigerian champions, Enyimba.
The Super Eagles’ fringe goalkeeper told SuperSport.com that he was on the verge of completing a move to the Peoples Elephant but had to revisit the offer from rivals, the Naze Millionaires, coached by former under20s head coach, Samson Siasia.
Bassey, 26, said after considering the offer from the two clubs, he decided to settle for the Naze Millionaires in spite of knowing that they will not be featuring in either the Caf Champions League or the Caf Confederation Cup in 2011.
“Yes Heartland is not playing in the continent next year but Heartland is a big club here in Nigeria and Africa and I have a good offer here at Heartland than Enyimba.
“Yes that is where I was to sign but their offer was not good for me,” said the goalkeeper, who switched from former champions, Bayelsa United.
Akpan’s decision to join up with Heartland brought to an end speculation that he was on the verge of signing for Nigeria Premier League (NPL) sides, Sunshine Stars and Kwara United.
