Enugu Rangers have confirmed the acquisition of Kehinde Adedipe (Rivers United), Obinna Eleje (unattached), Agu Kenechukwu (Lamryl United), Uche John (Enyimba) and Ikechukwu Ibenegbu (Enyimba).
The Flying Antelopes finished third at the end of the last season and will campaign in the CAF Confederation Cup where they have received a bye to its first round. They are the only Nigerian club to skip the preliminary round out of the four clubs representing the country on the continent.
The media aide of the team, Norbert Okoli told SportingLife.ng that they are also closed to the signing of Abia Warriors’ Ibrahim Olawoyin whose negotiation has been going on well.
He confirmed that their former player, Chinedu Udeagha has not returned to the club against the erroneous impression in the media (not SportingLife) that the ex-Enyimba midfielder has signed for them.
“We have signed five players officially and more are still coming in. Ibenegbu, Uche John, Obinna Eleje, Agu Kenechukwu and Kehinde Adedipe are our players officially while Ibrahim Olawoyin is closed to a deal
“We have most of the retained 22 players intact with the exception of three players whose their future is yet to be sorted out or have movedon for greener pasture. Michael Uchebo and Godwin Aguda were among the retained players but we cannot ascertain their future destinations yet. They left for overseas but have returned but Bright Silas has already secured a move to an Egyptian club.”
