Nigerian forward Gbolahan Salami has revealed he is close to sealing a move to Red Star Belgrade when the January transfer window opens.
The CHAN 2014 bronze medalist told African Football that he is excited with the prospect of joining the former European champions.
“I am excited already and appreciate God for what he has been doing in my career. I am so happy that a big team like Red Star Belgrade are interested in my services,” he said.
“My representatives Yomi Itsekure and Segun Ogunbayo(Murphy) have been working with a Serbian agent Goran Milovanovic about my move to Serbia and I have been informed that the deal is almost done.
“I will be in Serbia soon for a medical after which I will sign the deal.”
Salami, who got married two weeks ago, scored 17 goals last season in the Nigeria Premier League for Warri Wolves.
The ex-3SC and Sunshine Stars striker has 11 caps for Nigeria with two goals.
