The new deal signed by Dolphins striker Emem Eduok with Esperance of Tunisia is worth 300,000 Euros and it will run for three and a half years.
However, Norwegian club Sarpsborg 08 have threatened to drag the Nigeria striker to FIFA after they claimed he already has an agreement with them.
Investigations have revealed that the agent of Emem Edouk had earlier brokered a four-year deal worth $150,000:00 with Norwegian club Sarpsborg 08.
With the Tunisian deal on the table, Dolphins snubbed the deal from Norway to endorse the move to Tunisia.
In a bid not to lose out on the Norwegian club, and with the season ending, the players agent insisted that the transfer right of the Emem Edouk belonged to A&B Academy since his contract with Dolphins, who had paid his bills in the last three years had ran out.
The striker, who netted 25 goals last season in all competitions, is presently in the Super Eagles training camp preparing for the friendlies against Cote d’Ivoire and Sudan.
However, sporting director of Sarpsborg 08 Thomas Berntsen has confirmed that the club signed Eduok from A&B Academy on a four-year deal and not from Dolphins.
But the media officer of Dolphins China Acheru has said they are unaware the player is owned by A&B Academy.
“Emem played for Akwa Starlets, then Akwa united and then Dolphins. Who the heck is A&B Academy?” Acheru tweeted.
But Berntsen said he expects Eduok to resume with his side by January 18 after the Super Eagles games and if he failed to do so, they would be forced to take up the case with FIFA.
