Super Eagles Star Onazi Completes €4.5m Birmingham Deal
Super Eagles midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi has completed a €4.5 million deal to join English Championship side Birmingham City FC, according to latest reports in Turkey.
Onazi joined current club Trabzonspor from Lazio last year and scored twice in 27 Turkish Super Lig matches last season. The 24-year-old midfielder has 38 caps for Nigeria and was part of their Africa Cup of Nations squad that won the competition in South Africa 2013.
Blues manager Harry Redknapp hasn’t hidden his desire to sign new midfielders following the acquisition of Cheikh Ndoye from Angers. Redknapp thought he had secured a deal for Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu before he decided to join Bursaspor instead.
Meanwhile Torino midfielder Afriyie Acquah was also linked with a club record £7m switch to Blues yesterday.
