Yakubu Aiyegbeni

There are speculations that Nigerian striker, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, could be making a sensational return to the English Premier League where he distinguished himself in the past.

English tabloid​, ​Daily Mirror​,​ suggest​ed that Aiyegbeni could be reuniting with his former boss Harry Redknapp at QPR as the English manager seeks affordable options to bolster his attack line-up for the crucial second half of the League.

Aside Aiyegbeni, England striker, Jermain Defoe, who is with FC Toronto in the MLS is also being targeted by RedKnapp​.

However, the presence of Aiyegbeni in the stands to watch QPR lose 1-2 to Arsenal on Boxing Day further suggests he could be making the January move to Loftus Road​.

Redknapp had worked with Yakubu at Portsmouth when he gave the Nigerian star the chance to come to England; signing him on from Israeli club, Maccabi Hafia on loan in January 2003.

The last appearance in the English top flight for the 32-year-old Nigerian forward was in 2012 with Blackburn Rovers when the club were relegated.
Yakubu has also played for English clubs like Leicester City, Everton and Middlesbrough in a time that spanned about a decade in the United Kingdom.

The ex-Super Eagles striker currently plays for Qatari club Al Rayyan and has six months left on the contract.
