Suva to fork out more for Sanni

By Sunil Sharma

Suva Football Association will have to fork out $5700 to fly in Nigerian utility Issa Sanni for this month's Battle Of  Giants tournament.

Sanni is scheduled to fly into Fiji via Hong Kong and Suva FA has to borne his travel expenses including his return ticket after his stint with the Whites this season.

Suva boss Mahen Prasad told FijiLive they are trying to secure a sponsorship to get Sanni as the association is already spending alot for preparations for the Battle Of Giants.

"His fare is quite high and we are talking to some supporters of the team and if we can raise his travelling expenses then we will surely fly him in," said Prasad.

"Sanni is a good player and it will be good to have him around for Suva."

Meanwhile, Navua midfielder Monit Chand has also expressed his interest in joining the Fiji FACT champs in the new player transfer window.

Prasad confirmed Chand was negotiating with a club and chose not to discuss further details.

Nippy Rewa striker Ratu Luke Lomasalato is also believed to be eying a move to the Capital City in the new window while former Labasa defender Samuela Kautoga is all set to become the Gurjit Singh coached side's first signing in July.

District players only have 14 days from today to apply for their release should they will choose to switch district as the player transfer window closes on July 15.
