Tunisian FA Introduces New Rules To Checkmate Nigerian Players Influx

The Football Association of Tunisia has introduced new rules to checkmate the increasing transfer of foreign players into the league.

With the set of new rules, the hopes of many Nigerian players playing in the league may have been dashed.

It was gathered that the FA in agreement with the league body has agreed to a new rule, which states that clubs are only allowed to sign foreign players with ten appearances for their national team.

However, the rule only applies to foreign players from the age of 19 and above, and it also involves games for youth teams and B teams of their country.

The new regulation is meant to curb the constant flow of players into the Ligue 1 in Tunisia, with Nigerian players cited in the local press in Tunisia.

During the last transfer window in Tunisia, four Nigerian players saw proposed move broke down due to various issues but this new regulation will curb that number in the next transfer window.
