Super Eagles and Kano Pillar defender Jamiu Alimi has completed a shocking move to Akwa United in the NPFL mid-season transfer window.
Alimi has played 33 NPFL games with the Sai Masu Gida last season and has to earn first team action this season under coach Kadiri Ikhana.
“I have completed my transfer to Akwa United from Kano Pillars,” Alimi divulged to Naijafootballplus.com on Tuesday.
The former Shooting Stars defender and 2016 CHAN star will be unveiled in Uyo on Thursday inside the Nest of Champions.
Alimi added; “I am a professional and I want to play regular games. I decided to leave Kano Pillars and move to a club that appreciates me more.
“I am honoured to have been part of the history of Kano Pillars and the opportunity was given to me to play in Kano.
“I don’t have an issue with coach Ikhana, I respect his decision. He gave me more tedious work and I am excited I delivered in those matches.
“I have always dreamt of playing at Akwa United and working under coach Abdu Maikaba. The relationship started when I worked with him last season in Spain for the NPFL All-Stars team.
“The structure in Uyo is amazing and the team have been impressive recently. I can’t wait for the second stanza, I am looking forward to working with my new teammates. Hopefully, it will be a success at end of the season.”
