English interest in Igiebor

Sky Sports understands a number of English clubs are tracking Nigerian midfielder Nosa Igiebor.

Igiebor has been linked with a move to England in the past, with Fulham making an enquiry for the Real Betis man last summer.

Betis are facing a fight to keep hold of Igiebor in the wake of their relegation from La Liga last season with a host of sides keen to lure him away.

Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv are thought to be leading the chase for Igiebor and have tabled a bid for the powerful midfielder.

However, several Premier League and Championship sides are thought to be keeping tabs on Igiebor with the midfielder's attributes ideally suited to the style of play in England.
