Ikeme was recently diagnosed with acute leukaemia, a form of cancer of the blood that could affect his career long-term, if not end it.

The non-league side, based in Wolverhampton, same as Ikeme’s club Wolverhampton Wanderers, unveiled their plans to name a stand in the Super Eagles star’s name to raise funds for him earlier on Wednesday.

Touched by the gesture, Ikeme thanked the club for their support.
