MUZA FC star Adebayo Mustapha welcomes interests from Nigeria Professional Football League clubs

Nigerian striker Adebayo Olayemi Mustapha has spoken of his desire to seal a switch to the Nigeria Professional Football League as their transfer window officially opens today, August 1.


Adebayo currently plays for Zambia league club, Maestro United Zambia Football Club (MUZA FC) but was on the books of Kabwe Warriors last season where he was directly involved in six goals contribution in 10 games. He is keen to switch to the Nigeria Professional Football League following a quota system introduced to the Zambia League which stipulates that teams are not allowed to register more than five foreign players.


The versatile striker is a huge admirer of the Nigeria Professional Football League and feels he would be able to succeed after excelling in Kenya, Somalia and Zambia leagues.


“The Nigeria Professional Football League is one of the most exciting leagues in Africa,” Adebayo told

“Every player wants to play in his country’s league, with the big crowds and the coverage.


“Many successful Nigerian players came through the ranks in Nigeria football. The current Super Eagles captain and legend, (Ahmed) Musa, is a great example.

“I am very fast and technically very good. All the players in the NPFL have those qualities so I can make a name for myself.”


Adebayo admits he would be open to offers from NPFL teams, but would also be happy to play for any of the League’s top sides.


Quizzed which team he likes, Adebayo replied: “Wikki Tourists, Akwa United, Enyimba, Remo Stars, Plateau United, Rangers and Sunshine Stars are all good teams, even Abia Warriors, and Nasarawa United are all really good.”
