Nigeria U17 defender Lukman Zakari has finally agreed to join Tunisian club CS Sfaxien after he initially rejected the club’s offer and said he preferred to follow up possibilities in England and Spain.

Sfaxien have agreed to fork out a total of $300,000 for Zakari, who featured at last year’s U17 World Cup triumph in Chile.

However, the deal was in danger of collapsing after the youngster turned it down after claiming he would rather pursue interests in England and Spain.

“Everything has now been agreed with all the parties involved after the boy yielded to pressure for him to sign in Tunisia,” a source informed on Friday.
