Joseph Yobo has hailed the transfer of Alex Iwobi to his former club Everton from Arsenal because the Super Eagles forward will enjoy more regular playing time at the Liverpool club.
Iwobi has left childhood club Arsenal for ‘The Toffees’ for a 38 million pounds, which makes him the most expensive Nigerian signing ever.
“Iwobi needs to be playing regularly especially after Arsenal brought in Nicolas Pepe, so it was a good move he left,” Yobo said.
Yobo featured for Everton between 2002 and 2012 during which time he played more than 200 games.
However, the former Eagles captain said Everton also missed out on a top talent in Henry Onyekuru when they sold him to AS Monaco.
The Premier League club had failed to secure a work permit for Onyekuru in Britain.
