The 18 year old Buba is a midfielder in the mould of French midfielder Paul Pogba, a trait which earned him the nickname Paul Pogba by friends and close associates in Nigeria.
Information from a close agent with FC Heart, the nursery team of the talented starlet, confirmed the deal, but stated that it is not official yet as some issues needed to be taken care of.
” Talks on a contract started today with Buba, although there are interest elsewhere for now FC Porto are in the driving seat but an agreement is far. Some issues still need to be sorted out before it becomes official”, he disclosed to www.owngoalnigeria.com
Nigeria has been noted as source talented players for major clubs in Europe, especially age-grade players.
If the current negotiation is perfected, Buba would be joining other young Nigerian stars such as Moses John, Chidera Ezeh, Musa Yahaya, Fidelis Irhene, Mikel Agu and Chidozie Awaziem who are currently on the book of the club.
Chidozie Awaziem is the only player presently registered with the first team of the club.
