Super Eagles Winger Onyekuru Set For Galatasaray Loan
Super Eagles winger, Henry Onyekuru is set to join Turkish club Galatasaray on a season-long loan from his English Premier League side, Everton.
Onyekuru joined Everton in June 2017 for £7 million and was immediately loaned to Anderlecht Belgian side Anderlecht.
The 21-year-old scored nine goals in 19 appearances for Anderlecht, but returned to Everton in January 2018 when a knee injury ruled out him out for several months.
Despite his return to training, he was overlooked in Nigeria’s squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Galatasaray confirmed on Twitter they have started "formal negotiations" with Everton over another temporary switch for the forward, who had attracted interest from several Premier League clubs before sealing his move to Goodison Park.
“Professional footballer Henry Chukwuemeka Onyekuru's official transfer started with official talks with footballer and club Everton FC.”
Arsenal and West Ham both held talks with the player's advisors after he scored 20 goals for Eupen in the 2016/17 campaign.
Everton completed a deal after they activated his £6.8m release clause, but Onyekuru has yet to make an appearance for the Toffees.
