Vincent Enyeama’s long wait for club football will have to continue after Ligue 1 side Dijon decided not to offer him a deal despite undergoing trials with them.
The former Super Eagles goalkeeper has been without a club since he was released by Lille last summer. He has not played competitive football for over two years and was reported to be having trials at Dijon with the hope of securing a deal.
However, Les Rouges decided against offering the 36-year-old a deal, although Enyeama seems to take the decision in good faith, thanking the club for the opportunity.
Despite the setback, the former Hapoel Tel Avi shot-stopper does not plan on retiring, saying he still hopes to find a new club soon.

Meanwhile, Super Eagles strikers Victor Osimhen and Henry Onyekuru are close to joining different Ligue 1 sides according to reports.
The duo who were part of the Super Eagles team that finished third at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations have attracted interest from Lille and Monaco respectively.
According to reports, Osimhen is currently undergoing medicals at Lille and is set to replace Rafael Leão as the club’s top marksman. Les Douges reportedly paid 12m Euros which could rise up to 20m for the 20-year-old.
Onyekuru meanwhile is attracting interest from Monaco. The 21-year-old spent last season on loan from Everton at Galatasary, where his 14 in the Turkish topflight helped the Lions to Super Liga title.
It was expected he would return to the Toffees this season, but the Nigerian international has been denied a work permit once again according to reports.
With the latest setback, Everton are considering the option of selling the former Anderlecht striker outrightly and Monaco looks set to be the destination.
