Mba not qualified for UK work permit – Agent

EPL side Stoke City will not consider a move for Sunday Mba as he did not play enough games for Nigeria to be granted a work permit.

Netherlands-based agent Richard Umejei told that a proposed move to the EPL for Mba fell through because in the last two years, the player has only played 10 of the 20 internationals involving Nigeria.

Umejei disclosed: “It’s a pity Mba can no longer go to Stoke City because of work permit issues.

“He played 10 matches out of 20 matches, which is far below the 75% required for him to be granted a work permit. Had he played another five matches, he would have been good to go.
