Lobi Stars defensive midfielder Joseph Nathanial has replaced injured Paul Onobi at Omani club Al Nasr.
Former Sharks star Nathanial has signed an eight-month contract with Al Nasr, who already have Nigeria forward Daniel Etor.
Onobi, who has been capped by the Super Eagles, played in Finland last year but he returned to the NPFL with Abia Warriors after his contract was not renewed.
It would be recalled that he started a World Cup qualifier against Swaziland ahead of then Chelsea star Mikel Obi when Sunday Oliseh was in charge of the Super Eagles.
He was subsequently released by Abia Warriors for him to pitch tent with Lobi Stars.
