The future of several Nigerian .ers is still undecided despite the start of some leagues and also a week to the start of the rest top level leagues in Europe, OwnGoalNigeria.com reports.
While some .ers of the Super Eagles have already secured their future, a couple of others will likely leave or sort their future at their present team before the close of the ongoing summer transfer window.
One .er who was widely tipped to leave his relegated side was Emmanuel Dennis of Watford. He scored ten goals but it was insufficient to keep his newly promoted side in the English Premier League as they were relegated.
Dennis was expected to be chased after by several teams but with around three weeks to the end of the transfer window, he is still at Watford and has even resumed .ing games for them following the resumption of the English Championship.
West Ham were initially said to be ahead of the trio of Nottingham Forest, Newcastle United and Everton but they have since signed Maxwell Cornet from Burnley and Antonio Scammaca from Italian side Sassuolo.
Their decision is said to be partially down to the .er’s questionable character rather than the price tag of £25m slammed on him by Watford. TalkSPORT’s Alex Crook suggested that Dennis’ ‘character’ may be a deterrent for Hammers boss David Moyes.
Crook told Give Me Sport:
“Now they’ve got Scamacca, I wonder if they’ve done some background checks on him because, from what I’m told, maybe he’s not necessarily the type of character that David Moyes wants to bring into the dressing room.”
