Enugu Rangers goalkeeper, Emmanuel Daniel, has reportedly been linked to a move to South African club, Mamelodi Sundowns.
Various reports have suggested that the 23-year-old has been in talks with the Africa Cup champions for quite a while, and that it is only a matter of time before his transfer will be made public.
The fact that Daniel is currently travelling, has also added fuel to the flame suggesting that he may make a move to South Africa. According to reports, Daniel told his teammates that he is traveling to see family, but that, in fact, he flew to South Africa to undergo a medical examination with Sundowns.
These claims have not been substantiated.
However, Paul Uzor, the Rangers’ general manager, has said that he and his management team are unaware of any talks with Mamelodi Sundowns.
“We have still not heard from Mamelodi Sundowns, I cannot give you any information I don’t know about,” he told reporters.
Daniel has been playing for the Rangers since 2013. He has also represented the Nigerian under-23 side in both the 2015 African Games and the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
He was called up to the Super Eagles in October of last year, for Nigeria’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Zambia.
