''WE ARE NOT AWARE OF OBOABONA IS DUE FOR TRIAL AT ARSENAL'' SUNSHINE STARS
Nigeria Premier League club Sunshine Stars have dismissed reports their skipper Godfrey Oboabona is due for trials with English Premier League outfit Arsenal.
Reports from Britain were quoted in local media that international defender Oboabona was due for trials at Arsenal in the summer.
"We are not aware of any such trials, like you read it in media so did we read it. But as a club we are not aware," stated club chairman Segun Adagunodo.
Sunshine have also disclosed that international stars Oboabona and Solomon Kwambe are not in their plans for the season.
"We didn't include Godfrey Oboabona and Solomon Kwambe in our plan for the season because they will be so busy with the Super Eagles," stated Adagunodo.
Sunshine have a placed a price tag of a million Euros on the star defender.
Oboabona had earlier hinted that he had offers from the top five leagues in Europe, insisting that he is angling for a move at the end of the season.
The player was in the thick of action for Nigeria in a 1-1 draw in a 2014 World Cup qualifier against the Harambee Stars of Kenya in Calabar.
