Nigeria defender Juwon Oshaniwa is on the verge of joining Scottish champions Celtic

Nigeria international defender Juwon Oshaniwa is on the verge of joining Ambrose Efe at Scottish champions Celtic.

The 22-year-old left-back who is a part of Nigeria's 23-man Nations Cup squad is reported to be on the wish list of Celtic's manager Neil Lennon.

Oshaniwa whilst confirming the possible move was cautious of saying too much as negotiations were still on-going.

“There are on-going discussions on the move for me to go to Scotland. Once they are done, then everybody will have a clearer picture,” Oshaniwa disclosed.

“It is God that has the final say, but they are already talking with my club president.

“My preparations with Nigeria (for the Africa Cup of Nations) did not allow me go to Scotland to do some of the things that I am required to do.

“But by God’s grace everything will work out well with Celtic,” he said.

If the transfer is successfully completed, Oshaniwa will be following the footsteps of his compatriot Ambrose Efe who also joined Celtic from the same Israeli club - FC Ashdod.

Have anyone analyzed this guy before? I dont really know much about him?

When MTN rated the Eagles against Cape Verde the sayed:

4 Juwon Oshaniwa
Despite coming on in 81st minute, he showed some qualities and delivered a pull out that begged for connection.
Good luck

Rabiu Ibrahim is probably a muslim; and I believe so. But, I must confess the truth here. I think he needs some deliverance/ exorcism-- and I am mean in a living church of God. I am sure his career will take off after that. I have a feeling that his life is held down by forces beyond what is seen in the ordinary. The world has gone up side down and we must not pretend it is not true.

People who are close to him should advise him so. I recommend the SCOAN of Senior Prophet T B Joshua. Muslims go there too; and marvelous things happen there.

The guy in the picture is Ejike Uzoenyi and not Oshaniwa. Oshaniwa is a good player, though most of us expected Taiwo to make the Eagles squad ahead of him.
