Mountain of Fire Ministries striker Stephen Odey has suffered a setback in his quest to play at the highest level in Europe as the striker’s proposed move to Danish side Midtjyland has been cancelled owing to accusations of age falsification.
According to reports from AOIfootball.com, the management of the club detected that the age the supposed 19-year-old presented in his passport was distinctively different from the one on his certificates.
The report also suggests that the NPFL leading scorer is on his way back to Nigeria as he was asked to “leave their Sports Complex immediately” after the discovery.
MFM had warned of reporting to FIFA concerning the “tapping” of Odey from the club by the Denmark-based club if the striker doesn’t report to the club before Friday prior to this new development.
It is believed that the Lagos-based side does not want Odey to move to Midtjyland as they claimed that the Danish side can’t afford his £1 million transfer fee.
