Wolves' Akpoveta joins Brondby

Warri Wolves striker, Oke Akpoveta has signed a four-year contract with Danish club Brondby.

His agent, Atta Aneke, informed MTNFootball.com: “Akpoveta has signed a four-year contract with Brondby. He has been given the number 14 shirt and he is set to make his debut as soon as all the necessary paper work has been done.

“It’s a great move for the player to come from the Nigeria Premier League and straight into the first team of Brondby.”

Akpoveta was originally to have replaced compatriot Anthony Ujah at Lillestrom, but it appeared that the Norwegian club delayed to allow Brondby snap up the 19-year-old striker.

In the meantime, the transfer negotiations of Nigeria Olympic international Nosa Igiebor from Lillestrom to Hapoel Tel Aviv of Israel have stalled.

However, it is expected that a breakthrough will be achieved in the next few days.

Hapoel Tel Aviv, former club of Nigeria international goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama, will again feature in Europe this season after they played in the group stage of the Europa League last term.
