French club, LOSC Lille, confirmed on Friday that it has parted ways with Vincent Enyeama, former Nigeria-international goalkeeper.
Enyeama, a member of the late Stephen Keshi led triumphant Super Eagles of 2013 in the African Cup of Nations, recently celebrated his 36th birthday during the week.
Lille wrote in the departure statement: “Beyond his performances, LOSC and his supporters will remember Vincent’s smile and enthusiasm. The club now wishes him the best in his future projects.”

He joined the Ligue 1 club from Hapoel Tel Aviv in 2011.
Since his sojourn in France, Enyeama has led the team to a UEFA Champions League campaign.
The Nigerian holds the record for most clean sheets in France, going 21 games in 38 without concession in the 2013/2014 season.
Now a free agent, Enyeama spent the most of the 2017/2018 season recovering from a Meniscus knee injury which kept him out of action for the whole period.
The goalkeeper tweeted: “the end,” confirming his departure.
