Yakubu departs

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA - JUNE 12: Yakubu Ayegbeni of Nigeria smiles as he receives a pat on the back from Diego Maradona head coach of Argentina during the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Group B match between Argentina and Nigeria at Ellis Park Stadium on June 12, 2010 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Yakubu has completed a loan move to Championship side Leicester City with a view to a permanent transfer in the summer.

The move should free up some cash to spend on a loan signing with Monaco's Dieumerci Mbokani a rumoured target.

A more detailed look in the Nigerian's career to follow but for now we can only wonder what might have been had he not suffer such a horrendous injury just months after ending his first season at the club top of the scoring charts with 21 goals.

 

Good luck Yak and Moyes - get a replacement in quick!!
