Nigeria Premier League side, MFM FC have denied rumours that its prized asset Stephen Odey will be joining Celtic, Owngoalnigeria report.
Owngoalnigeria claims that MFM FC did not receive any offer from Celtic but rather received offer from Russia outfit, FK Krasnodar.
Owngoalnigeria claims to have spoken to a close source to the Lagos based club.
” We read these things and laugh over it. So far only Kuban Krasnodar have been in touch officially. They sent us a mail which contained an offer for Odey. So I wonder where talks about Celtic came from,” the source told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” FC Copenhagen offered to have him on trail, through an agent but his manager said Odey won’t be going for any trials. Talking about Celtic those peddling the rumours should know that Odey is not qualified for a work permit yet.
” He will leave for Russia before the end of the week. He is going for negotiations with FK Krasnodar and that has been agreed on by the management, so for now that is our stand.”
