Kelechi Nwakali has explained he has not played an official game for new club CD Huesca because he has yet to complete his transfer paper work to Spain after he was released b Premier League club Arsenal.
“I haven’t started playing with the team (Huesca) as I am yet to complete my clearance,” Nwakali said.
Officials have told SCORENigeria the player will undergo special drills due to his lack of playing time in Spain.
The highly-rated midfielder has since joined the training camp of the Nigeria U23s ahead of next month’s U23 AFCON in Egypt.
“The target is to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics,” Nwakali said ahead of the U23 AFCON, which begins on November 8.
“I came in early to camp to train with the team.”
