Nigeria Professional Football League side FC Ifeanyi Ubah are in talks with Barclays Premier League team West Ham over a potential partnership deal.
SuperSport reports that, the two clubs are nearing an agreement over the deal, which is expected to be closed before the end of the month.
Ifeanyi Ubah, the owner of the NPFL along with the chairman of the club, Chukwuma Ubah, were among the contingent of club officials that met with West Ham officials in London over a two-day meeting period last week.
Ifeanyi Ubah club officials conducted an official presentation to West Ham managing director Angus Kinner, who in turn put forward his ideas towards a possible proposal.
The deal will make possible an exchange of training programmes between the clubs as well as player scouting arrangements.
It will also help to advance youth player development strategies and train some up-and-coming coaches in Africa.
