Morning reports say that English team Derby have signed Aigebiny Yakubu and will pay Maccabi Haifa a 5 million dollars worth fee for it.

Yes I did hear that and it is great news. The fact that he will start off with a First Division club is very good because he will be under less pressure. If he succeeds I am sure that a Premier League club will go for him. Just a pity that he will not play for Maccabi Haifa in the cup final and that he has probably played his last game in Israel. Good luck to him in the World Cup.

It's quite sad to see Yakubu being dropped as he was part of their African Nations cup squad and was invited to play a few of their friendlies recently. :( Ejiofor, who is currently owned by Haifa and loaned out to a Nigerian team will be there though.

Yakubu could still be called up to the squad if one of the selected players gets injured or for some reason will not be able to play in the WC.
