Tunisian giants Esperance Sportive De Tunis have confirmed the signing of Anayo Iwuala from Enyimba FC of the Nigerian Professional League, NPFL.
The 22-year-old winger who began his career at Kada City signed a deal reportedly worth $500,000 over three years with the Tunisian club. He is also expected to earn about $10,000 weekly.
Esperance announced the transfer on its verified Twitter page on Monday. “It’s done for Emmanuel Anayo Iwuala. He is now [Blood and Gold] until June 2024. Welcome!” the tweet read, accompanied by a picture of the player posed in the club’s jersey.
The Lagos-born star was widely considered as one of the best players in the just-concluded Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.
He joined up with Gernot Rohr’s Super Eagles side in March and made his debut as a substitute in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho. He also featured in the international friendly against Cameroon in June and against Mexico last month.
