The former international who spoke on an online program with Hamza Akeem Oladimeji said the various Proprietors of these Clubs should endeavor to sign a semi professional contracts with the players which will make it difficult for the players to join any other club of their choice with the earlier club gaining nothing.

According to him, ” we have various instances where an Academy will bring complain of their players moving to other clubs without recourse to them, and with no compensation whatsoever. But in the actual sense, the players are at liberty to move to any club of their choice since they didn’t sign any professional contracts with the club. Signing of these contracts will entail the clubs paying the players’ salaries that they would use in sustaining themselves. With that, the clubs can lay claim on them anywhere they go” he added.

He further encouraged grassroot teams to always enter into partnership with professional clubs that will help in developing the players for future transfer sales.

He revealed that from next football season, no local transfer can be effected without going through the DTMS. He said that efforts are on by FIFA to have a FIFA CONNECT where data of all players including Academies and Amateur clubs would be captured for future references.
