Rivers Angels confirm transfers of Oluehi, Nwabuoku to Pozoalbense
Rivers Angels have reached an agreement with Segunda Division Femenina side Pozoalbense for the transfers of Nigeria senior women’s team stars Tochukwu Oluehi and Evelyn Nwabuoku.
Both clubs confirmed the deals on their official channels.
“We are glad to announce that we have finally reached an agreement with Spanish side @cdpozoalbensefe on the transfer of Evelyn Nwabuoku and Tochukwu Oluehi,” Rivers Angels announced on Twitter.
The news brings an end to a drawn-out transfer which began in july.
The Pozoblanco-based club had in July announced the signing of the duo, but the said deals were refuted by Rivers Angels.
A week after denying contact with Pozoalbense officials, Rivers Angels, though, acknowledged they had established formal communication with Manuel Fernández’s side.
And on Tuesday, the Nigerian champions confirmed a deal had been reached over the transfers of the World Cup stars to the Cordoba club.
The two clubs also signed an agreement that will see Pozoalbense help in the development of Women’s football by supplying the Port Harcourt club sports equipment.
“CD POZOALBENSE is pleased to announce the Rivers Angels female football club of Rivers State, Nigeria, and the Club Deportivo Pozoalbense female football club of Cordoba, Spain, have signed a partnership agreement to help the development of female football in Rivers State, Nigeria, through the Rivers Angels female football club. CD Pozoalbense football club will help in distributing sporting materials for the development of [women’s] football in Rivers State,” the contract, which gives Pozoalbense right of first refusal, states.
