The search for a club overseas for Nigeria league hotshot Godwin Obaje will continue after he did not bag a contract at Club Africain of Tunisia and there are now strong indications he will explore possibilities in Turkey.

Last month, a reported deal to Tunisian club Etoile du Sahel for the Wikki Tourists striker first came to nought.

A high-profile move to top Russian club Spartak Moscow had also crashed.

“Godwin is now looking at considering some offers he has in Turkey,” a source informed AfricanFootball.com

"He's now back in Nigeria from Tunisia."

Last NPFL season, Obaje fired 18 goals to help Wikki finish third in the championship.

Over the years, NPFL hotshots have cashed in on their goals to move overseas - Gbolahan Salami moved to Finland and Emem Eduok transferred to Esperance of Tunisia.
