Sudanese giants Al Hilal failed to bolster their goalkeeping ranks after a proposed deal to sign a goalkepper from Nigeria failed to see the light of the day.
The club made it a priority to get a new goalkepper and targets were contacted and Nigeria international goalkepper Adewale Adeyinka was picked as the preferred option.
However a deal with the goalkepper didn’t work out despite reports that he underwent a medical at the Sudanese side. He is now back in Nigeria to train with the CHAN team ahead of their qualifiers against Ghana.
Adeyinka who is now the deputy to Francis Uzoho following Maduka Okoye self exile is reportedly close to agreeing a deal to join CAF Confederation Cup campaigners Kwara United on a free deal, following the expiration of his contract with Akwa United.
He was a part of the Nigeria U17 team to the 2013 U-17 World Cup but an injury picked up during the Africa Cup of Nations saw him miss the tournament, and it led to the emergence of Dele Alampasu who went ahead to win the goalkepper of the tournament.
