National team net-minder Alagie Jobe is on the brink of swapping Senegal for the Nigerian Professional Football League where he’s set to sign a deal.

The 28-year-old is believed to have agreed to join El Kanemi Warriors on a two-year deal.

Negotiations were at an advanced stage last week despite claim of a deal being completed then.

However, it looks all rolled in smoothly with the talks after Senegalese championat outfit Linguere AS reached a consensus with El Kanemi.

Jobe, capped several times for the Gambia national team, is mooted to leave for Abuja at conclusion of the Scorpions camp in Morocco.

Alagie will begin to play there upon securing his work permit.
