Akwa Utd test Rangers resolve

Nigeria Premier League (NPL) club, Akwa United have made attempts to lure away two of Enugu Rangers' best players.

The Promise Keepers are interested in signing the duo of Haliru Umar and James Okwuosah when the mid-season transfer window opens this week.

Akwa United head coach, Solomon Ogbeide and technical director, Charles Bassey were impressed with the performance of Okwuosah and Umar when Rangers beat their team 2-1 in Enugu on March 25.

Midfielder Umar scored the winner against Akwa United while Okwuosah put in a superb performance in defence on that matchday.

However, sources close to Rangers informed that Okwuosah and Umar turned down offers from Akwa United when they were approached.

The pair has decided to stay at Rangers who have a realistic chance of either winning the title or qualifying for one of Caf club competitions in 2013.
