Abuja- Super Eagles fringe midfielder Sani Kaita has joined newly promoted Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) club Ifeanyi Ubah United FC on a season loan deal.
Kaita, who made the disclosed this in an interview with newsmen in Abuja said he was joining the club from FC Saxan in Moldova because of the passion and ambition of the club’s proprietor.
“It’s really interesting to play in the Nigerian league because that is where I started.
“It’s very difficult but with focus and determination I will succeed because I have the quality to do that.
“The proprietor, Ifeanyi Ubah, told me how he wants his club to be and I saw that he has passion and ambition to improve the game in all areas.
“That was what impressed me and I was motivated to join the club.
“I hope the team will be successful,’’ Kaita said.

Kaita expressed his optimism that the team could lift the 2014/2015 league diadem if it continued the way it was going.
He said he could extend the contract if things work as planned.
“When someone is happy doing his work and the team is progressing, why will he not want to extend his contract but for now I don’t know if I will extend or not,’’ he added.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Kaita has played for foreign clubs, including Dutch side, Sparta Rotterdam, Monaco FC of France and Greek club Olympiakos Nicosia.
