Rivers United have agreed a deal to sign defender Ekerette Udom from Nigeria Premier Football League, NPFL, side Sunshine Stars.
According to reports, Udom’s move to the former NPFL champions will be made official later in the week.
The towering defender played a pivotal role in Sunshine Stars’ qualification for the NPFL Championship playoff last season.
Udom had a brief spell in the Slovenian league last season before returning to Akure.
He has netted once in nine appearances for Sunshine Stars in the current campaign.
The 20-year-old played for Akwa United and Vandrezzer in the past.
