Super Eagles goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa has according to the Media Officer of the Nigeria U20 team Andrew Randa received an offer from a top club in Tanzania.

The deal will see the Tanzanian club pay $30,000 as sign-on fee to his club Heartland, while the Olympics silver medallist would receive a house, car and a salary.

A 18-month deal is currently on the table for the goalie, who has never played for a club outside the country.

The three top teams in Tanzania at the moment are Azam FC, Simba SC and Young Africans SC (Yanga Boys).
