Nsofor Close To Agreeing Konyaspor Move
Victor Obinna Nsofor Close To Agreeing Terms With Konyaspor
Out of favour Super Eagles forward, Victor Obinna Nsofor, is close to ending his stay at Lokomotive Moscow as he is set to join Turkish side Konyaspor.
The former Inter Milan man is already in Turkey and the move is expected to go through before the close of the European transfer window.
Nsofor was deemed surplus to requirements by Lokomotive Moscow and they omitted him from their team for this season, despite still having a year left on his contract.
Since the start of the 2014/2015 season he is yet to kick a ball in anger for any team, as Lokomotive also frustrated his efforts to move away from the team in the summer by demanding outrageous fee from interested teams.
His move to the Turkish side is expected to be a full transfer and they will hope his wealth of experience of playing in major European leagues and top teams can aid their quest to avoid relegation.
Already he has played in Italy, Spain, England and Russia making Turkey the fourth country he will be moving to since his move to Europe in 2005.
Nsofor has somehow become a journeyman since failing to make the grade Inter-Milan after his transfer from Chievo in the summer of 2008/2009 season.
He had loan spell at La-Liga side Malaga and Premiership side West Ham, before securing a permanent transfer to Lokomotive Moscow in Russia where in two and a half years he only scored three goals from 45 games.
His poor goals return led to him being loaned out to Serie A side Chievo during the second part of last season, his two goals in 10 games played a role in helping Flying Donkeys beat the drop to Serie B.
