Macsportsweb.net understands that Moroccan champions Wydad Casablanca are on the verge of announcing the signing of Nigeria international Micheal Uchebo after agreeing terms with his agent.
The lanky striker came close to making a switch to FK Haugesund this summer, but the deal collapsed at the last minute as he could not reach a financial agreement with the Norwegian club.
Uchebo has been a free agent since his departure from Portuguese setup Boavista.
He joined the club after participating at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, where he came up against Manchester United’s Rojo, Valencia’s Garay and ex-Man City defender Pablo Zabaleta in the Super Eagles last group match versus Argentina.
The attacker’s dribbling ability is surprising for a player of his height, can shrug off the opposition with ease due to his physicality, and has aerial presence as you would expect from a lanky player.
A product of Enugu Rangers, Uchebo started to play football in Europe for Dutch club VVV Venlo. He stayed for two and a half years before transferring to Cercle Brugge in 2012.
The 26-year-old is expected to arrive in Casablanca on Friday, all things being equal.
