Popoola Makes Belgium Loan Move
Popoola Moves From France To Belgium On Loan
Nigerian midfielder, Sodiq Popoola has left FC Metz on loan for Belgium club, RFC Seraing.
The former 36 Lion FC midfielder, Popoola signed a two year deal with French side, FC Metz but when it looked like he wasn't going to get enough playing time with FC Metz in the 2014/2015 season, his advisors suggested it'll be better he moved on loan to another club where he'll get more playing time.
According to the vibrant chairman of 36 Lion FC, Liameed Gafaar in a chat with SL10, Sodiq Popoola attracted a couple of interest from some clubs but RFC Seraing acted fast.
"Sodiq is one of our exports at 36 Lion FC and I must say that he is making us proud."
"Sodiq Popoola is now on loan with Belgium club, RFC Seraing for a season where we expect that he'll get more playing time," said Gafaar.
The strong creative midfielder, Popoola whose accurate passes can split any defense was part of RFC Seraing team that played a 2-2 draw with FC Metz in a friendly early July.
Liameed Gafaar also told SL10 that Standard Liege forward Ezekiel Imoh who also left 36 Lion FC on the 12th of January 2012 to Belgium will move to his new Qatar club, Al Arabi in a matter of days.
"Imoh's deal is 90% done, he has passed his medicals but the only thing left is that Standard Liege wants him to play in the Champions League qualifier next week and after that he'll leave," Gafaar stated.
