Owner of NPFL side FC Ifeanyiubah, Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, says his side are currently in talks with two Chinese clubs to sell Nigerian talents to them.
Ifeanyi Ubah says he does not want to be left out of the increased riches in the Chinese Super League which has seen John Mikel Obi, Oscar, Carlos Tevez and Cheik Tiote move to the Asian country.
"We don't want to be left out of this revolution in world football. We want to sell our players to clubs who find them good enough to play in the Chinese Super League,” he said.
Last year Ifeanyi Ubah sealed a massive partnership deal with top English Premier League side West Ham United.
