The club announced via their Sporting Director Jorgen Petersson that they have decided to terminate the remainder of the four year deal he signed at the club last summer as he broke the provisions of his contract by returning late for Nigeria, where he went to spend the Christmas break.
” We follow the the usual working days and when you do not follow the work, we did what we should do and won’t comment any further. Through his behavior he has violated parts of his contract which is not okay. He did come for pre season. It was such a gross breach of contract and there are no places to sell him”, he said.
” The deal is broken, he has broken the agreement by not coming here for pre season training. We wish him and his representatives well”, he concluded.
Since signing for Kalmar on a free transfer, the midfielder who has played for Nigeria at all youth levels bar U23 and the main senior national team has not made a single appearance for the team.
