are our players officially while Ibrahim Olawoyin is closed to a deal
with us,” Okoli told DaSportsTainment247.com.
“We have most of the retained 22 players intact with the exception of
three players whose their future is yet to be sorted out or have moved

retained players but we cannot ascertain their future destinations
yet. They left for overseas but have returned but Bright Silas has
already secured a move to an Egyptian club.”
