Mountain of Fire and Miracles, MFM FC have valued the Nigeria Professional Football League’s top goals scorer, Stephen Odey, in the region of $700,000 to $1,000,000, amid constant transfer speculations linking him to Danish side, FC Midtjylland.
This disclosure was made by the club’s director, Emanuel Adeyemi, on a Lagos radio programme on Thursday, where he further disclosed that the 19-year-old striker has a binding contract with the club.
“We are looking at between $700,000 to a million for the player,” Adeyemi began. He’s a bonafide player of MFM and is contracted to our club,” he insisted, debunking widespread rumours that Odey had been on loan at MFM FC for the past three seasons.
Earlier, Odey’s agent, Yusuf, had stated that the player was only on “a facility tour” of Danish club, FC Midtjylland and that was before reports emanating from Denmark indicated the player is, in fact, undergoing trials in the Scandinavian nation.
MFM FC coach Fidelis Ilechukwu had admitted during a radio programme on Tuesday, that he was “not aware of his whereabouts”; the player departed the country without initially informing his employers of his whereabouts, but all that has now been sorted out.
