Festy Ebosele Attracts January Transfer Interest From Udinese, Stuttgart


Derby County of England youngster, Festy Ebosele is reportedly attracting January transfer interest from Udinese of Italy and VfB Stuttgart of Germany, megasportsarena.com gathered.

This marks another career leap for the native of Watford, who previously represented Ireland at U16 and U17 levels before stepping up to the U19 ranks on the back of his fine performances for Derby’s U18 team.

He moved to Derby in the summer of 2018, after spells at Moyne Rangers, St. Joseph’s and Bray Wanderers, then got his Ireland U19 debut the following year.

Although initial reports out of Pride Park indicated that The Rams are not ready to sell the Nigerian-born youngster, the latest angle to the tale indicates that he could be on the way out soon.

This is sequel to updated information indicating that Ebosele is a target for Stuttgart and Udinese, who this week signed up Ireland U19 international, James Abankwah from St Patrick’s Athletic in a €500,000 deal.

An additional report by British tabloid, Sunday World disclosed: “The Wexford lad is out of contract with Derby County at the end of the season and Wayne Rooney’s side, who are in administration due to their financial issues, fear they will lose Ebosele.

“A reported bid of £500,000 from Derby’s bitter rivals Nottingham Forest was rejected last week but due to the background issues at Derby, who were docked 21 points this season due to their financial affairs, they are unlikely to be able to retain Ebosele.

“Last week it was reported that the German Bundesliga trio of Wolfsburg, Freiburg and Mainz were interested in Ebosele but German media reports have linked him with Stuttgart.

“Udinese have also been linked with Ebosele and their interest, given how quickly they completed the deal to sign Abankwah, could be significant.”
