FIFA have freed Nigeria striker Jude Aneke from what his representative described as “Egypt Nightmare”.

Nigeria all-time leading scorer in the Nigeria league Aneke has quit Egyptian club Al Masry under a cloud and as a result can now feature for Spartak Semey of Kazakhstan.

"Jude (Aneke) has joined Spartak Semey in Kazakhstan. It is important that he returned to the game after the Egypt Nightmare. Jude was freed by FIFA. It was a long fight, but at the end we won and Jude can play again,” his representative Hasan Egilmez told

“His fitness is not in doubt and I am sure he will be a big hit in Kazakhstan. He signed a six-month deal."

He had struggled to establish himself at Al Masry and injuries also did not help his cause.

Three years ago, 24-year-old Aneke set a new all-time record of 20 goals in the Nigeria league, beating the 18-goal mark set by Ahmed Musa.

He has played for Anambra United, Ebonyi Angels, Kaduna United, Warri Wolves (all in Nigeria) and  Al Masry of Egypt.
