Daniel Amokachi's transfer to Manchester ity has been blown of. A medical examination shortly after his arrival in Manchester showed that his knee will not stand up to the rigours of professional football.

Amokachi has flew back to Turkey where he's considering his option. Strangely enough a move to the Greek side Ionikos may still be an option :confused:

It rell y looks bad for Daniel. That injurie is probably worse than he can accept.


From: Optasoccer:

Tird Division club Darlington have a made an audacious bid to sign Nigerian international Daniel Amokachi.
The former Everton star has been plying his trade in Turkey with Besiktas, but he is now in England looking for a new club.

"We are still waiting to hear from his agent," Quakers manager Gary Bennet exclusively told planetfootball.com. "We have offered a trial and want him to come down."

Manchester City and Tranmere Rovers have both looked, but decided against the 28-year-old, who is thinking over an offer from The Quakers.

"Gary has spoken to players and has been given the backing to go for them," said Darlington director Luke Raine. "We are determined to sign players who can lift us away from the wrong end of the Third Division table."

Amokachi turns down Darlington move
LONDON (Reuters)(DS) - Nigerian international Daniel Amokachi has turned down a short-term
move to third division Darlington, officials said on Tuesday. The 1995 FA Cup winner with Everton was due to meet Darlington's director of football
Luke Raine on Sunday but changed his mind at the last minute. "He was going to join us to get his fitness back and then move on but he has decided to
wait for a premier league club," Raine told ananova.com on Tuesday. The Nigerian 1994 Olympic gold medal-winner is currently without a club after spells with
Club Bruges, Everton and Besiktas.
Darlington are in 19th place in the lowest division of the English soccer league, just four
points from bottom.
