Almeria may block Azeez EPL switch
There are strong indications that modest Spanish side Almeria may block Nigeria star Ramon Azeez from joining Swansea City in the English Premier L.eague.
According to africanFootball.com, Swansea has tabled a bid for the 21-year-old Nigeria World Cup midfielder, but Almeria is not in a hurry to sell.
“Yes, there is a bid from Swansea for Ramon. The player and his club are currently in Thailand for pre-season and that includes the club president, who does not wish to sell Ramon,” a source close to the former Flying Eagles skipper told africanFootball.com.
“Almeria is due back in Spain at the weekend and Ramon has said he has been speaking with his agent on the transfer.
“We just have to wait and see how things play out but at the moment, Almeria officials are not willing to let go one of their prized assets.”
Almeria barely escaped relegation from La Liga last season with Azeez, drafted in from the reserves, popping up with some crucial goals and assists in the process.
He played a total of 32 matches and scored two goals.
