Nigerian striker Anthony Ewurum has turned his back on Gzira to join rivals Naxxar Lions
The former Vittoriosa Stars striker had already given the word to Sharlon Pace that he was ready to play for Gzira again. He had already also ben paid the signing of fee from Pace personally. The story took a twist few days ago as the 27 year old returned back the signing on money to accept the Lions offer.
Sportinmalta.com contacted Naxxar Lions coach Winston Muscat as he confirmed the deal is in place for the 27 year old. He also confirmed the arrival of Brazilian Ivan Perino.
The portal also contacted Pace and confirmed the story. Now Gzira are setting their eyes on Nigerian Alfred Effiong as their main priority target. Gzira are also in advance talks with two former Hamrun Spartans players but no names have been tipped to us as yet.
