FLYING Eagles players have already started reaping the fruit of their labour in the ongoing African Youth championship in Cotonou as no less than seven players in the team will jet out for trials while others will start new career with some clubs overseas after the end of the African Youth Championships.

Argentine agent, Marcelo Houseman, said he had concluded plans to take striker Obinna Nsofor and Kolawole Anubi to International of Port Alegry in Brazil while he had also talked to others in the team.

"I have already talked to Obediah Ifeanyi and Onyekachi Apam of the possibility of playing for Olympiakos in Greece. I am just waiting for the club's letter and another clearance from my partner Nikos Carras to formalise everything," Houseman, who saved the Flying Eagles from embarrassment by paying the bills for using the Hotel Marina pitch for the team's training for two days, told Kick Off.

The FIFA-licensed agent also revealed that "the players are moving to play in Brazil because they cannot play in Europe now as a result of their ages which are below 18 years. By the time they play for three to four months there, they will be ready to storm Europe," Marcelo said.

He also disclosed that, "Obinna will have the chance to launch himself to limelight by playing for International Port Alegry in the South America Cup, equivalent to UEFA Cup Championship in Europe because many international managers will be there to watch Brazilian talents on display.

You know that if they suddenly find a Nigerian on display there, then they will believe that he is good enough to play in such a high level club side," Marcelo told Kick Off in Cotonou.
