The club has now decided to let him on loan in order to get enough playing time under his belt.
“Ikeowum Udoh Utin was loaned to Bnei Sakhnin, the left back defender joined the Israeli premier league newcomers in order to accumulate playing time and he will be under the supervision of Maccabi Haifa. The Club wishes him all the best”, the club in a statement on the Twitter handle.
