A cloud of uncertainty has enveloped Okwuosa's move but his agent Mohammed Lawal has quickly moved to clarify the situation, stating that the steely defender will fly back into South Africa this weekend after fulfilling club commitments.
"James has had to stay behind longer at his club Enugu where he is captain to play in the crucial end of season games as his club is still involved in the race to win the League for the first time in 29 years.
"He has a done deal at Ajax but had to go back to Nigeria at the request of his club who seriously needed him back in the team. After having played in the games that his club wanted him to play he is now landing back at the weekend to start off his career at Ajax," Lawal explains.
Rangers, who have a single match remaining, were beaten 3-0 by Lobi Stars yesterday and are now all but out of the title race, with Lobi and Kano Pillars in a better position.
Okwuosa had a brief trial at Ajax last month and played in the pre-season friendly against Manchester United. After the match Ajax boss George Comitis confirmed that the Nigerian defender had signed for three years.
Ajax are currently faced with a foreign quota headache as they need to decide who to register as their fifth foreigner, George Akpabio or Tafadzwa Rusike, who is due to leave for trials in Belgium.
