Super Eagles goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa has agreed to rejoin Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Heartland of Owerri after leaving Katsina United.
Last season while playing for Katsina United, the 30-year-old goalkeeper was superb before he left the side to join Super Eagles prior to the AFCON 2019.
He was among the Super Eagles player who won bronze medal at the 2019 African Nations Cup held in Egypt.
According to the report on Brila FM, the former Ocean Boys stopper has signed a two-year deal with the Naze Millionaires.
In Ezenwa's first spell at Heartland, he was in the squad that played in the final of the 2009 CAF Champions League which they lost against TP Mazembe.
''It is as good as done and dusted – Ezenwa will be playing for Heartland in the next season.
“Heartland have proved to be ambitious for the coming season, they gave a good offer and they look like a team who are set to go all out in the coming season, and that’s the reason we decided to settle for them,'' a source close to the player told Brila FM.
