His rise brought about reports of interest in his services from teams in Europe and huge interest from Saudi Arabia side El Ettifaq. Chippa United are not opposed to his exit but insist that his transfer fee must meet their valuation.

Fellow PSL side Kaizer Chiefs are said to be keen on having him between the sticks as replacement for veteran Itumuleng Khune who is set to depart the team at the end of this season.

Nwabali was asked about his possible next port of call and he hinted at possibly remaining in the PSL instead of a move to Saudi Arabia or a team in Europe, citing the first choice goalkeeper of the South Africa national team as one who is getting due recognition while playing in the PSL.

“Ronwen Williams is at Sundowns, he gets everything he wants, he’s got the name, the sponsor, his family is here, everyone is supporting him, he’s the captain of Bafana Bafana, to me the league is okay,” Nwabali told Far Post.

“The league, the pay is a little bit nice for [depending on] a certain level of your team. It’s not like in West Africa where our leagues are not that good. We want to go to Europe, we want to go to South Africa, we want to go to Morocco, all those kinds of leagues, if your league is nice there’s no point in you leaving.

“If your league is nice, you’re getting paid, you’re getting sponsors, what are you leaving for? ,” he continued.

“If you want to challenge yourself, you can still leave. It depends on you if you can cope there, if you can’t cope there, it’s fine to just come back and play your football.”

The former Enyimba man also revealed that he is in touch with Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana, whom he met at the AFCON.
