Anelka waits for Algeria go-ahead - age permitting

12 January 2015, 09:19

Algiers - Former Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool striker Nicolas Anelka is on the verge of signing for his 13th club, NAHD of Algeria, as long as he's not judged to be too old.

The 35-year-old former French international has been training with Nasr Athltique d'Hussein-Dey (NAHD), but needs special dispensation from the Algerian football federation (FAF) before he can put pen to paper.

"Anelka is waiting for a concession from the FAF to sign his contract as they expect internationals to be under 29 years old when they sign," NAHD president Mahfoud Ouled Zmirli told AFP.

The club want Anelka, who has also played at Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain in a colourful and controversial career, to pen an 18-month deal.

"Anelka hasn't discussed money -- he just wants to play for an Algerian club," said the club president.

The player's most recent port of call was with Mumbai City in the Indian Super League.
