Ex-Ajax midfielder waits for club call

Former Ajax Cape Town midfielder Enoh Eyong is hoping to revive his career in England and is waiting by the telephone for a call from a club.

The former Cameroon international midfielder was voted runner-up in the Absa Premiership Player of the Season awards in 2008 but is now without a club.

After six years with Ajax Amsterdam, where he went after his spell in South Africa, Enoh's three-year stay at Standard Liege in Belgium came to an end in June and he is looking for a club in England.

There have been talks with Bolton Wanderers, but with Enoh a free agent not bound by the transfer window, he can take his time to make the right decision.

"I am just focused on training," he said in an interview with Sky Sports.

"It is quite tough on your own but that is why I have got myself a personal trainer to push me. It is a big challenge because it is the first time I have been out of contract. I could have renewed. I could have got something in Russia or elsewhere. But I just wanted to come back to the UK and I want to make a good decision."

During his time with Ajax Amsterdam, the 31-year-old defensive midfielder went on loan to Fulham and to the Turkish club Antalyaspor.

His time in Belgium was more problematic.

"The first year was what I expected but after that it became challenging because they kept changing managers a lot. Every transfer window it was another new set of players. As much as you want to build something, that is not possible with a project when you are always changing.

But Eyong says he is ready to bounce back.

"I feel good. Whether the best years are ahead of me is up to me, but the potential is there. The key is to get the right club with the right ambition."
