After about two years off the game, former Super Eagles goalie, Vincent Enyeama, is looking forward to making a return to club football next season.

The former AFCON champion last played for Lille in April 2017 and was released in August 2018 by the club.

The former Nigerian international began his professional career with Ibom Stars in 1999, before linking up with Enyimba in 2001.

In 2004, he made his way to Iwuanyanwu Nationale for a season before he was snatched up by Bnei Yehuda in 2005.

In 2007, Enyeama moved to Hapoel Tel Aviv before linking up with Lille in 2011, where he won the French Ligue 1 African Player of the Year season.

Speaking to the media about his prolonged leave after his contract termination, Enyeama said he decided to take a few months to rest and regain his strengths, however, now he is ready to bring down his boots and hit the pitch once again.

I did not think about retiring at all, it’s not in my diary. I already have contacts for next season. I started talking with a club in France. I prefer playing in a French club because my family lives there, our goal is to stay there as long as possible.

If I find something here, it will be perfect. But I remain open to all opportunities, even if abroad it would be with pleasure, but my first goal is to play in France.
