The Spanish club have confirmed the Nigerian striker has parted company with them after the exit fee in his contract was paid via the league on Monday.

"Footballer Obafemi Martins has this afternoon placed at the headquarters of the Professional Football League (LFP) the amount corresponding to the termination clause in his contract with Levante UD," said a Levante statement.

The well-travelled 28-year-old former Inter Milan and Newcastle striker is now expected to fly to the United States to complete his move to the Sounders, who would become his eighth club.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
