Ex-Eagle Kaita On Loan to Enyimba
Former Super Eagles midfielder Sani Kaita has joined Enyimba on a three-month loan deal.
Reprts from the club says that the midfielder has been training with the team already.
“It is a good thing for our league that a player like Kaita, who has played at every international level for Nigeria, is joining Enyimba.
“He brings a wealth of experience from Europe and from his time playing for the Super Eagles that will benefit the club and the younger players in our club,” the source said.
Kaita started his top-flight career at Kano Pillars in 2004 before moving on to Sparta Rotterdam where he spent the majority of his European career.
He moved to French club Monaco in 2008, but found his opportunities limited and was regularly loaned out to the likes of Rubin Kazan and Lokomotiv Moscow among others before joining Tavriya Simferopol in 2011.
His last move was a loan to Olympiakos Nicosia in Cyprus.
Despite his club instability, Kaita enjoyed a steady run with Nigeria, starting at international level where he helped the Under-20 team to a silver-place finish in 2005, then Olympic silver at the 2008 games. He also won two African Nations Cup bronze medals in 2006 and 2010.
Kaita last played for Nigeria at the 2010 World Cup when he was sent off for an impetuous retaliatory lunge at Vasilis Torosidis as Nigeria lost in the group stages to Greece.
