Rivers United target, Chinedu Udechukwu says he is willing to drag Katsina United before the League Management Company and the Nigeria Football Federation’s Players’ Status Committee in a bid to regain his freedom.
Udechukwu was prevented from moving to Plateau United after the chairman of the topflight side, Aminu Balele Kurfi insisted the striker was not for sale at any price.
And after agreeing personal terms with Rivers United the player told Goal that he is willing to prove to the LMC and NFF that he only signed a season contract with the Chanji Boys and that he became a free player at the end of the 2016-17 season.
“I know that Rivers United have made my desire to join them public and I agree to it because they have promised to help me regain my freedom. I signed a season contract with Katsina United and what the club has been saying behind are all lies and agreement between them and my agent. I am ready to take them to the NFF and LMC to prove that I do not have any contract with them again,” Udechukwu told Goal.
Udechukwu scored 12 goals in his debut season in the topflight for Katsina United to ensure that the Chanji Boys avoid relegation.
