The former Kwara United wing-back arrived Aba yesterday evening ahead of a medical with Enyimba scheduled for today after which he will sign for the seven-time Nigeria champions.

Nasiru Sani said: “Yes, I am in Aba now ahead of my medical.

“Every other terms and conditions have been discussed and we have reached an agreement.”

He also revealed Kano Pillars were also keen to sign him.

“I thought I was going to join Pillars because they have been pushing for my signature since the end of last season, but the deal could not go through,” Nasiru said.
