Former Super Eagles defender, Juwon Oshaniwa, is training with NPFL side, Akwa United with a view of securing a permanent deal with the Promise Keepers.

Oshaniwa, 28, has been without a club after he was released by Scottish club, Heart of Midlothian in June 2017, a year before his contract was due to expire.

Akwa United are in the market for a new left-back after Gabriel Wassa left the club for former NPFL champions, Plateau United this week. The Uyo club named Brazilian Rafael Everton as their new head coach on Monday.

“Oshaniwa is one of the few players training with us ahead of the new season,” Akwa United media officer, Mfon Patrick told CSN. “He is working hard in training and if our new head coach (Rafael Everton) is happy with his performance, he will be offered a contract.

“He is a quality defender if one want to consider his antecedents, but it is important for him to prove he still has what it takes to play at the highest level.”

Oshaniwa, who was capped 17 times by Nigeria, has featured for NPFL clubs; Kwara United, Lobi Stars and defunct Sharks Football Club of Port Harcourt.

He was part of the Super Eagles team that won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa and played all four matches four Nigeria at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. (Complete Sports)
