The fleet-footed left winger has through his lawyers written to Rangers for his release as a free player from the ‘Flying Antelopes’ fold in the third week of January.

But pressures from some quarters did not make this achievable which has now forced the player to write a second letter to the management of the club for his release on the condition that Rangers keep 20 percent of his last season’ sign-on fees and issue him with an I.T.C for him to proceed to Sundowns as a free agent.

Uzoenyi joined Rangers from Enyimba in the 2009/2010 season in exchange for Bishop Onyeudo and has risen steadily to be the highest paid player of ‘The Flying Antelopes’.
