Malta record-breaking Goal King Obinna Obiefule has revealed he is set to move to Israel or China for the coming season.
Israeli club Maccabi Haifa and Guangdong Sunraycave FC of China are now locked in talks with the prolific striker’s agent.
Obiefule, who set a new goals record in Malta history last season when he scored 34 goals for Mosta, said both teams are keen on having him and that talks are in top gear and in a few days his next destination will be known.
"Discussions will soon be finalised. Talks are almost concluded with the teams that have shown seriousness about having me. Guangdong Sunraycave, China and Maccabi Haifa, Israel are talking with my agent, and it has reached an advance stage,” Obiefule told MTNFootball.com
The most prolific Nigerian striker in Europe this season Obinna Obiefule has set a new goal-scoring record of 34 goals in Malta.
Obiefule fired a hat-trick Friday in a 4-1 demolition of Qormi in the Malta premier league playoff to power Mosta FC to safety and catapult his exploits into the history books.
The previous all-time record was held by Danilo Doncic with 32 goals.
"It’s great that I have made it finally. This is the biggest achievement of my career,” an excited Obiefule told MTNFootball.com
Obiefule's hat-trick equally helped Mosta stay put in the BOV Premier League next season and he was named the man of the match.
