Sunday Mba : NFF orders Wolves, Rangers to agree on transfer fee by Thursday

The Nigeria Football Federation has ordered Nigeria Premier League
clubs, Warri Wolves and Enugu Rangers to agree on a transfer fee for
Super Eagles’ attacking midfielder Sunday Mba before the close of work
on Thursday, 28th March, 2013.

“Failure of the two clubs to reach a reasonable conclusion on the fee
will compel the NFF to fix such a transfer fee by Friday, 29th March,
which must be paid on the agreed terms before the player is cleared to
play for his preferred club and continue his career,” said a statement
by the Ad-hoc Committee set up by the NFF on the matter.

Having established that the player was transferred from Enyimba FC of
Aba to Rangers in December 2006, loaned to Dolphins FC of Port
Harcourt and duly returned to Rangers, the Committee also affirmed
that Rangers gave a ‘provisional clearance’ to the footballer to play
for Warri Wolves between 2011 and 2013, but the player left Warri
Wolves without any documentation back to Enugu Rangers and in fact was
registered for the 2013 CAF Champions League by the Coal City club.

Although the Committee established that the player no longer wishes to
continue to play for Warri Wolves, it slammed the unhealthy and
unwholesome practice in the Nigeria League whereby verbal agreements,
against proper documentation, hold sway. It indicted the clubs thus:
“Transfer and loan fees meant for player transactions were not written
down in clear terms and club accounts were found not to have been used
for most transactions, which promotes unhealthy dealings in player

The Committee concluded: “Based on the available information as
presented by the Nigeria Professional Football League Management
Committee on the Club Status of Player Sunday Mba...the player is
currently having his contractual obligations to Warri Wolves.”
