The 24-year-old’s contract with Omonia ends at the end of this season, with the player open to a potential exit amid reports Ligue 1 club Stade Reims are interested in signing him.

Hapoel Jerusalem goalkeeper, Adebayo Adeleye is the second-rated Nigerian keeper in Europe after keeping six clean sheets in 15 games this season, conceding 16 goals, while Sebastien Osigwe is third in the ranking, having kept two clean sheets from three games so far this term for Lugano.

Maduka Okoye is ranked fourth as he is yet to keep a clean sheet for Watford after two games this term.

He was open to a move away from Vicarage Road and has also been linked with a return to the Dutch Eredivisie.

Meanwhile, Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer, Ike Shorunmu, is pleased with the form of the goalies in Europe and has urged them to stay at the top of their game.

“The goalkeepers are doing well and I can only say that this form will make competition for places in the Eagles more competitive when they stay in form. The AFCON qualifiers are around the corner and I hope they maintain this form,” He said.
