Towering centre-back Ike ThankGod has finally got the all-clear from Enyimba to take his career to fellow NPFL side Sunshine Stars.
Ike was close to a deal with Enyimba local rivals Abia Warriors, but after failing to make manager Okey Emordi's final cut, Ike opted for a move to Sunshine Stars.
However, after the two sides reached an understanding for a transfer fee of a million Naira, Sunshine Stars demanded for shift in the payment date, a demand Enyimba vehemently objected to.
Sunshine Stars claimed there was no immediate cash to pay and as a result asked that Enyimba issue clearance for the former Super Eagles defender on the understanding that they will pay later when cash is available.
Enyimba's refusal to grant credit facility in respect of the experienced former Heartland, Warri Wolves, FC Fanja (of Oman), Abia Warriors and lately Enyimba, meant he was not registered for the season and similarly missed the first four matches of the 2016/2017 domestic top flight.
