FIFA have cleared Nigeria U23 midfielder Godspower Aniefiok to feature for Tunisian club Etoile du Sahel.
It is still not clear why it needed the intervention of world football governing body before Aniefiok could play official games for the Tunisian club.
Efforts to get information from the player’s last Nigerian club Kano Pillars have not yielded anything yet.
The tall defensive midfielder, who was part of the squad who won the U23 AFCON in Senegal last year, has also played for hometown club Akwa United.
Aniefiok could now feature for 2015 CAF Confederation Cup winners Etoile in Saturday’s CAF Super Cup match against Champions League winners TP Mazembe in Lubumbashi.
The Tunisians have also been drawn bye till the first round in this year's Champions League.
