Sports Nigerian goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama likely to leave Lille before the transfer window closes

Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has hinted on a possible transfer move away from French club,Lille FC before the transfer window shuts.

The Nigerian international was in goal for Lille in their UEFA Champions League playoffs on Wednesday,but they ended up losing 1-0 to FC Porto in the first leg.

Enyeama could be one of the players Lille would put up for sale if they fail to secure qualification for the group stages of the Champions League,with Salomon Kalou another player who could be on the way out.

“Leaving Lille? I can’t rule it out,” the 31-year-old told beIN Sports.

“I like Lille, the club, the city... If the club decides to sell me, that is their choice. Personally, I am not particularly looking to leave the club. I'm happy where I am. But if the club woke up and said, 'Vincent, you have to go’, I would thank them for what they have done and I will.”

Enyeama had a spectacular season last year,accounting for 21 clean-sheets in 38 Ligue 1 appearances last season.

Meanwhile the club's president Michel Seydoux spoke of potential transfers for captain Rio Mavuba and Salomon Kalou, who are both actively seeking moves.

“We have tremendous respect for Rio and Salomon,” he said. “The choice [to move] is personal and not that of the club. We would be delighted if they stayed. That would be good news for Lille.

“But if they have a chance to go then they must seize it. We will not hold players in handcuffs.”
