The Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Pinnick has confirmed that Bundesliga outfit, VL Wolfsburg are tabling a lucrative offer for Golden Eaglets striker, Victor Osimhen to VL Wolfsburg
Speaking at a media parley in Abuja on Thursday, Pinnick however stated that the NFF are still holding on and will adopt stringent measure to ensure no member of the victorious 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup squad is exploited by clubs or agents.
He further stated that the Federation will pass a legislation which will declare the players as national assets under the purview of the NFF.
‘ I got a call from Wolfsburg who had a lucrative offer for Osimhen (Victor) and I asked what their plan was for the player (sic). There must be a plan which they’ll have to defend.We won’t stop anybody from travelling but we’ll be religious about monitoring because we believe the Federation should have a major role to play.
‘ We are going to tell the agent to stay off because no ITC will be issued to any player until we know exactly where they are going to and the plans they have.We are not just taking about winning but also the impact on seamless transition. We’ll come up with a legislation soon; within a week or two,that will make the players national assets. What Wolfsburg is offering is huge and very tempting but we’ll turn them down if their plans don’t suit ours.’ the NF boss concluded.
