Pillars agree Kabiru Umar loan deal
Kabiru Umar - Signs for Pillars
“Kabiru Umar has joined Kano Pillars on loan for a season,” disclosed Pillars spokesman Idris Malikawa.
Umar, who has already begun training with Pillars in Kano, has also been registered by the Kano outfit for next year’s CAF Champions League.
The striker, who has been capped at ‘B’ international level by Nigeria, has also featured for Enugu Rangers and was widely linked with a return to the Enugu club before Pillars snapped him up.
He is seen as a direct cover for Pillars star striker Gambo Mohammed, who is likely to return to Turkey during the winter transfer window after a series of trials there last summer.
