UPDATE 1-Soccer-Nigeria's Nations Cup hero Mba joins CA Bastia

Aug 29 (Reuters) - Sunday Mba, who scored the goal that won the African Nations Cup for Nigeria earlier this year, left Warri Wolves for French team CA Bastia on Thursday.

The 24-year-old has signed a one-year deal, the Ligue 2 club told reporters in Corsica.

Mba, who was on target in the 40th minute of the 1-0 victory over Burkina Faso in the Nations Cup final in Johannesburg in February, cost CA Bastia a fee of one million euros ($1.32 million).

The promoted French club are 15th in the 20-team table with two points from four games.
