Extinction is looming large for the Russian club of Brian Idowu and Fegor Ogude, as reports out of the European country indicate that Amkar Perm are facing financial difficulties.
Idowu and Ogude may now have to hunt round for new clubs in the January transfer window, following revelations that Amkar Perm are experiencing liquidity issues, which may stop them from continuing beyond the current season.
Newly capped Super Eagles left-back, Idowu has been on the books of the Russian Premier League club for seven years, but Ogude joined the Perm-based outfit from Vålerenga of Norway in January 2014.
Ogude, who has played 86 games for the club, with four goals to his name, is contracted to Amkar Perm until June 30, while Idowu’s deal runs out two years later.
However, they may both find themselves unemployed at the end of the 2017-2018 season, after the club’s general director, Igor Reshohin has confirmed the sordid development.
Reshohin disclosed: “All right, he said, it’s true. There is, if you say softly, the problem – we don’t have confirmed funding for next year.
“Negotiations are ongoing, but they do not lead to anything good. Financing is not confirmed either by the region, or by the sponsor.”
