Former Nigeria U23 captain, Erhun Obanor has ended speculation about his future by joining Croatian top-flight club, NK Istra 1961, on a free transfer.
NK Istra 1961 has announced through their Facebook page that Obanor is a new player of the club without disclosing the financial terms and duration of the deal.
According to report the ex-Dream Team VI star has signed a two-year contract with NK Istra 1961, until the end of the 2022-2023 season.
Obanor’s past club KF Laci were keen to retain his services for the forthcoming season but the central defender opted to move on to pastures new.
The 25-year-old is presently in Benin City and is planning to link up with his new club at the end of the month as he has to apply for a visa.
Obanor had attracted interest from clubs in Azerbaijan and South Africa before settling for NK Istra 1961.
He is the second Nigerian to sign for NK Istra 1961 this week, after onetime Golden Eaglets invitee Theophilus Solomon, joined from Kuwaiti side Qadsia SC.
