Bernard Bulbwa’s Shuttle Sports Academy are set to ask FIFA to cancel the player’s contract following the non-payment of a transfer fee of $180,000 for the Nigeria U20 forward.

Shuttle Sports Academy are yet to receive the transfer fee agreed for Bulbwa transfer to Tunisia even after the academy directed the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to release the player’s International Transfer Certificate (ITC).
AfricanFootball.com specially gathered that several weeks after Esperance claimed they have transferred the cash to the Academy’s account, they are yet to receive the money.
“It is a very bad piece of business for the academy because Esperance have not been honest in their dealings with them in respect of the transfer of Bernard,” a source told AfricanFootball.com
“The way it is even going, they may even lose the player for nothing unless they act fast and decisively.”
Nigeria premier league club Dolphins have only received half of the transfer fee on striker Emem Eduok from Esperance.
Enyimba pulled the plug on Kingsley Sokari’s move to Esperance after the Tunisian club failed to pay $400,000 agreed for the midfielder’s transfer.
Bulbwa, on the other hand, has settled down quickly in Tunis and Esperance were able to even register him for this year’s CAF Confederation Cup.
