Fidelis Ilechukwu has agreed personal terms with Heartland FC after ending his 13-year stay as head coach of Lagos-based MFM FC.
Sources close to the coach claim he is expected to put pen to paper on Friday and will be named the new Naze Millionaires head coach anytime from now.
Ilechukwu had last week confirmed that he needs the blessings of MFM FC owner Olukoya to make a move.
He said: “I cannot make a move except I get my Daddy’s blessings, it is a must, that’s the only way I can be successful wherever I go to”.
Ilechukwu guided the club to the CAF Champions League in 2018, but missed out in a continental ticket last season.
He will replace Ricardo Cabanas who was in charge of the five-time NPFL champions for just one season.
