Nigeria U-23 Obinna Nsofor on Brink of Joining Everton F.C.

Victor Obinna Nsofor's display at the Olympics, which led to a silver medal with Dream Team IV, might seen him join three other Nigerians at Everton including U-23 national team mate Victor Anichebe.

The move to Goodison Park however is subject to Nsofor getting a UK Work Permit to complete a loan move to the Toffees just days after joining Inter Milan on a full transfer from Chievo Verona.

But with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Julio Cruz and Hernan Crespo among others ahead in the pecking order, a loan move to Goodison Park would be the ideal option for the 21 year old.

Should the deal come through in time, Nsofor could also be available for the Toffees as early as this weekend when Everton hosts bottom of the table Portsmouth that has Nwankwo Kanu and John Utaka in its squad.

The striker scored two goals for Nigeria's Dream Team IV on their way to silver at the Games male football event won by Argentina.
