Super Eagles midfielder Sunday Mba has disclosed that he is ready for the big move to Europe.
Mba who scored the winning goal for the Super Eagles in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations told Goal that he is back to his best after the battle from two Nigeria Premier League clubs almost derailed his plans to join the foreign League.
But with the declaration of Warri Wolves that he can play for Rangers on loan for free, Mba is confident that he will soon realise his ambition of playing abroad.
“I am a happy man now because all the problems associated with my career at home are now over. Now I can say that I am ready to finally make the big move to Europe since there is no contention about my status,” Mba told Goal.
“I want to say that Warri Wolves did a good thing by allowing me to play for Rangers on loan for free and I intend to make good use of that opportunity.”
Despite not playing at club level, the 25-year-old scored twice in a 4-1 demolition of neighbours Cote D’Ivoire in Kaduna as the national team hopes to secure its first qualification for the African Nations Championship next year.
“I have watched the game against Cote D’Ivoire and I am satisfied with my performance. I want to continue to improve my game.
“Now I have settled down to concentrate after my agent and Warri Wolves settled everything last week. But be rest assured that I will soon join a big club in Europe.
“I want to use this opportunity to say that only Barrister Chike Onyeacho is my lawyer and agent that is permitted to negotiate any deal on my behalf.
“I need to make this clarification to douse every tension that has arisen from recent comments that another person will represent me if anything comes up.
“I am happy with the way I am now and all I want to do is to continually improve my game,” said Mba.
Goal learnt that clubs from Europe have made enquiries about the player and are set to lay down the cards to sign him before the end of the European transfer window.
