CHAN Eagles star Kingsley Eduwo has turned down a staggering one million dollars deal tabled by an Iraqi club, can exclusively report.

Eduwo’s representative Lanre Famakinwa told the 21-year-old striker, who netted 16 goals in all competitions for Lobi Stars this past season, does not wish to rush out of the country for only money, but for football reason as well.

“Kingsley (Eduwo) got a one-million-dollar deal a year from an Iraqi team, but we agreed not to accept the offer because Kingsley is not in a rush,” Famakinwa told SCORENigeria

“He does not want to rush and get a deal just for the money only, he has a future in main stream European leagues.”

Eduwo’s goal against Benin in Kano last month qualified Nigeria to next year’s CHAN.

The all-action striker also featured at the recent WAFU Cup in Ghana.
