Published on: 15 March 2016

Nigeria international, Paul Onobi, is set to kick start his career with Finish side, Kuopion Palloseura after he was issued work permit by the Finland Football Federation. The former Sunshine Stars midfielder recently penned a year and half deal with the finnish top division side, but has yet to feature for the club  due to the non issuance of the work permit.

A reliable source close to the player informed that the work permit issue  has been resolved and the player will make his debut for the club anytime soon.

"Paul has been cleared to play for KUPS. He has been issued his work permit and he will make his debut in Finland very soon," the source revealed

"He is eager to start playing  and get into the national team once again."

Onobi is the third Nigerian who recently joined KUPS following the capture of Azubuike Egwuekwe and Gbolahan Salami.
