The Management of Owerri-based club on Tuesday raised an alarm over the disappearance and alleged transfer to Katsina United of one of their players, Nnoshiri Samuel.
In a statement from the club licensing officer Nze Tonnex Chukwu made available to the it said the player was duly registered with the club, with his clearance fee fully paid and salaries/bonuses paid up to date before his disappearance.
Heartland is worried that due process was not followed in placing the club on notice nor did Katsina United contact them.
“We remain resolute in seeking justice and can ill afford to lose a player in whom we have invested so much,” part of the statement said.
“Heartland wishes to also alert any club playing Katsina United that Samuel Nnoshiri was not duly transferred to them, and as such is ineligible to play.
“Consequently Heartland request the dispute resolution mechanism of the Nigeria Football Federation,(NFF) and the Nigeria Proffessional Football League(NPFL) to ensure that justice is not only done but is seen to have been done,” it added
Heartland has endured a torrid moment induced by Covid-19 and FIFA imposed transfer ban and can ill afford to lose a player in whom they have invested so much.

“Nnoshiri is our player, we have written to the authorities and will stop at nothing untill we achieve redress,” the release concluded
