Enyimba has announced the signing of midfielder Elijah Akanni from MFM FC.
Akanni severed ties with MFM following the Olukoya Boys’ relegation from the Nigeria Professional Football League last season.
“Enyimba Football Club has reached an agreement for the signing of Elijah Akanni,” reads a statement on the club’s official website.
“Akanni will join the People’s Elephant having spent several seasons with MFM FC.”
Eight-time NPFL champions, Enyimba are looking to rebuild their squad after a disappointing campaign last term.
The Aba giants finished in the sixth position on the table.
Akanni is an attacking midfielder with a good striking ability. He can also function effectively in deeper central midfield positions.
