Super Eagles’ striker, Simy Nwankwo will have to wait till the final days of the transfer window to know if he would be playing his football away from current Club FC Crotone after it emerged that the relegated club are still hopeful of playing in the Serie A next season following the allegations of match-fixing leveled against Chievo Verona, AOIFootball.com reports.
Simy, who already returned to preseason training, was poised for a move away from the club this week but will have to delay it a bit following the recent development as both the player and club await the final decision from the Italian FA.
Chievo finished five points above the dreaded relegation spot in the Serie A, but could still face relegation after the Italian FA’s sports tribunal, the FIGC, accused the club of falsely accounting for the transfers of 30 players with Cesena.
Although this has been fiercely denied by Chievo officials who released a 12-page statement detailing the negotiations, if found guilty, they could be deducted 6 points which will automatically see them relegated, a situation that will reinstate Crotone FC back to the Serie A, having finished 18th on the log with 35 points.
Fiorentina and SS Lazio are among the clubs that have enquired about the Nigerian.
