Enyeama could make Israel return


The Super Eagles goalkeeper has endured a frustrating spell in France, spending much of his time on the sidelines as back-up to Mickaël Landreau, and was recently told by Lille manager Rudi Garcia that he could negotiate for a move outside of the club in order to get more playing time.

Israeli newspaper Walla reports that Enyeama is currently in talks with Israeli giants Maccabi Tel Aviv, who intend to sign him on a season long loan, with an option to renew. Enyeama admits that negotiations were still ongoing but declined to give further details.

"At the moment I know nothing concerning the fact that Maccabi would loan me out for one season and then I should return to France.

"I still do not know if there is an agreement between the clubs. I played for Hapoel Tel Aviv and now I'm in a situation where I have not played a whole year. Now the only option I have is to join Maccabi Tel Aviv.

"There were no other proposals along this summer. What can I do? We looked everywhere, no goalie wants to move and the market is frozen with enough goalkeepers. If the clubs reach an agreement so I guess soon after I arrive in Israel.

"We'll see in the coming days. I leave to my agent and my team to address these matters." he said.

Maccabi Tel Aviv will have to pay an intial fee of €300,000 to Lille OSC, with an option to renew upon expiration at the end of the season.
