Former World Cup and Premier
League star Jay-Jay Okocha could be on the verge of a shock move to
amateur side Wolverton Town after

Okocha , 41, played 45 minutes for
Wolverton’s reserves against Arlesey Town reserves last week, but has not yet decided on whether to make a permanent move to the Milton Keynes club.

Wolverton Town, said: “He did play

“He is friends with somebody who
coaches at the club and could be
helping out with pre-season training
with the players. We will be able to
say more once he has decided.”
