Jafar signs for Bayelsa Utd

Kaduna United's leading scorer last term, Buhari Jafar has surprisingly joined newly-promoted Nigeria Premier League (NPL) side, Bayelsa United.

Jafar is the second high-profile player to leave Kaduna United within a week.

The move of the striker from the north to the south of the country came as a shock to the club's top officials.

"I can confirm that Buhari Jafar has joined Bayelsa United. It's a surprise move for us all that he opted to go to Bayelsa United," said one of Kaduna United officials to

"As much as we want to keep some of our top players for the coming season, it has proven to be difficult, as we are faced with a bit of financial problem. So we can't stop any player who wants to leave."

Jafar, who scored six goals for Kaduna United last term, leaves the club within a week after Emmanuel Bivan joined Kano Pillars.
