Nigeria youngster Chukwudi Agor has suffered a temporary setback in his quest to try out at Spanish second division side Esperamendula after he was denied an entry visa, Scorenigeria.com.ng reports.
Agor won the 2015 FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile with the Golden Eaglets.
He had been billed for a look-in at the Spanish second-tier league side that could lead to him signing a contract, but Scorenigeria.com.ng has exclusively gathered the Spanish embassy could not grant the 18-year-old midfielder an entry visa.
“The (Spanish) embassy did not give him visa”, informs ASJ Football Academy director, Emeka Amajiriaku.
“That’s why he has not traveled yet”.
It is however understood that Esperamendula are still pushing for their target to be available for the potential look-in.
“But at the moment, we are making a fresh move to have him travel”, added the ASJ boss, who owns the footballing right of the midfielder.
“Esperamendula have appealed against the visa denial.
“They have even sent him (Chukwudi Agor) a fresh invitation letter which is being processed at the moment.
“So, hopefully, Agor will still travel once we’re through with the travel papers”.
Agor had last December undergone successful trials at Slovenian club PK Solenica, but could not sign any contract following finance-related differences.
