Mountain of Fire striker Stephen Odey’s proposed switch to Swiss Super League side FC Zurich may be on the brink of collapse despite the Nigeria Professional Football League outfit claiming a deal is in place.
Six days after the close of the summer transfer window, FC Zurich have yet to officially announce the signing of the Nigeria international, fueling speculation that something is amiss.
A Mountain of Fire insider told allnigeriasoccer.com : ”I don’t know what is delaying the deal. The Ghanaian player (Raphael Dwamena) Odey was supposed to replace came back to the club after he failed a medical at Brighton.
”The transfer has been processed by the TMS manager. It is not an issue of third party ownership because the person they claimed owned the player publicly stated that he belongs to MFM.”
The pictures circulating on social media is not a confirmation of Stephen Odey penning a four-year contract with FC Zurich, but when he signed a representation agreement with French agent Jean, the intermediary that brokered the deal that took Victor Osimhen to VfL Wolfsburg.
Odey was courted by Swedish club IK Sirius, FC Midtjylland and Celtic before he apparently agreed terms with FC Zurich.
Mountain of Fire are expected to pocket 300,000 euros from his transfer if it goes through.
