Onazi joins Denizlispor in Turkey


Nigerian midfielder Ogenyi Onazi has joined Turkish Super Lig club Denizlispor after leaving Trabzonspor.

The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations-winning midfielder has put pen to paper on a one-and-a-half year contract with Denizlispor, with the club having an option for another year.

Onazi made 79 league appearances for Trabzonspors, scoring 7 goals having joined them from Lazio in 2016.

The post on Trabzonspor’s official website about the departure of Onazi reads,
We would like to thank our valuable player Onazi, who has adopted the values ​​of our club in a short period of time, who has managed to integrate with the city of Trabzon, who has won the love of all our fans from seven to seventy with his character and sincerity, and wish luck and success in his career after Trabzonspor. Get on the road, Ogenyi

The 27 year old made just two appearances for Trabzonspor this season. He recently returned to action after spending almost a year on the sidelines due to achilles tendon injury.
