"Joseph Yobo is someone I admire a lot and it will be a great privilege to play alongside him for Kano Pillars," the Kano Pillars striker told Complete Sports.

"Everyone at the club is keen to see him train and play in the league for us.”

Yobo’s move to Kano Pillars comes just three months after his testimonial game in Port Harcourt.

The LMC, organisers of the NPFL on Tuesday, June 21 announced that Yobo has signed a deal which will make him eligible to play for any interested club in the last 12 games of the season.
