Simba Give Up Chase For Overpriced Striker Victorien Adebayor

Tanzania Premier League giants Simba Sports Club have given up in their pursuit to sign Union Sportive de la Gendarmerie Nationale (USGN) striker Victorien Adebayor.

One of scouts had revealed that the youngster tops the club’s wish list once the transfer window opens hoping that the lad would not landed at another club.

Speaking to Kitenge TV, Simba Sports Club media manager Ahmed Ally confirmed the club has lost interest in Adebayor due to the price tag put on his head by the Niger Ligue 1 club’s management.

“Simba SC have officially abandoned the deal to sign Niger international striker Victorien Adebayor as we have been put off by the price USGN are asking,” said Ally.

Adebayor joined USGN in December 2021 following the collapse of his permanent move to ENPPI from HB Koge.

The 25-year-old started his career in 2014 at 18 years of age with AS Douanes in Niger before moving to Europe three years later to sign for France’s US Raon l’Etape.

His stay in France was cut short and he subsequently returned to Niger with USGN two months later. Six months later he moved abroad once again, this time to Ghana where he plied his trade with Benchem United.

The Niger international was snapped by Inter Allies and wowed football loving fans who accompanied his elegance and artistry with applause.

He was signed by Danish side Hoge from Inter Allies owing to his outstanding performances in the Ghanaian domestic top-flight.

HB Koge loaned him to Egyptian Premier League side ENNPI in September 2021 on a season-long deal.

Adebayor has 44 caps for the Niger national team and has scored 17 goals. He recently struck twice in 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifications against Djibouti.
