Akwa United have announced Enyimba striker Christian Pyagbara, Warri Wolves defender Samiu Liadi as well as Wikki Tourists ace Alhassan Ibrahim ‘Muazam’ are on a final 35-man squad for the new season.
Others are the MFM twosome of Ifeanyi Ifeanyi and Sikiru Olatunbosu as well as Shittu Lawal and Dini Usman from Wikki.
New coach Abdu Maikaba announced his squad for the new season as they head off to Calabar for a training camp.
Maikaba has worked with Liadi as well as the Wikki threesome of ‘Muazam’, Shittu Lawal and Dini Usman.
Former Nigeria U20 striker Pyagbara failed to explode at Enyimba after scoring goals at hometown club Sharks.
He will now hope to rediscover his shooting range with ‘The Promise Keepers’.
However, striker Fortune Omoniwari has been declared AWOL.
Omoniwari joined from Heartland in mid-season and Akwa United claim he signed a permanent deal.
