Luís Mira: NIP interested in acquiring headtr1ck

NIP are showing interest in NAVI's Daniil "headtr1ck" Valitov, Dexerto editor Luís Mira reported via Twitter, citing his own sources.

The authoritative journalist did not share any further information about the possible deal but recalled that in September of this year NAVI announced that they were open to transfer offers for Valitov.

headtr1ck started his career in NAVI's academy team in 2020 at the age of 15. Together with NAVI Junior, he took part in a number of tournaments, including four seasons of the WePlay Academy League, and in 2022 he temporarily joined the club's main squad for ESL Pro League Season 15 and BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022.

NIP now need a fifth player after Patrick "es3tag" Hansen was moved to the bench. The Swedish club has to complete its roster ahead of the next competitive season, which is scheduled to begin at the end of January.

Earlier, insider Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov reported on NIP's new player. He did not reveal the name of the Ninjas' rookie, only noting that "it is going to be shocking".
