The possibility of a truce between Super Eagles midfielder Onazi Ogenyi and his Turkish side Denizlispor is no longer visible after both parties failed to reach an amicable agreement.
Fanatik reported on Monday that while few home breed talents had their contracts renewed, it was a different story entirely for foreign players with the club poised to weed out some of its foreign imports.
While contracts of foreign players like Hugo Rodallega, İsmail Aissati, Hadi Sacko, Radoslaw Murawski, Zakarya Bergdich, Tiago Lopes remain intact, Onazi Ogenyi was omitted from the lists of foreign players mentioned.
As at press time, all effort to get Onazi’s views on the recent development proved abortive.
Onazi linked up Turkish Super Lig club Denizlispor on a one-and-half-year contract after leaving Trabzonspor.
He joined Trabzonspor from Italian outfit Lazio in August 2016 and made 79 league appearances for the club and scored seven goals
The 27-year-old recently returned to action after spending almost a year on the sidelines due to Achilles tendon injury.
But the word was rife that Onazi is on the verge of joining Serbian side Red Star Belgrade
Onazi has struggled to hit top form since moving to Denizlispor and has only made six appearances for the club, no thanks to persistent injuries.
However respected Nigerian journalist and former Super Eagles Media Officer Collin Udoh once revealed that the player is in advance talk with Red Star Belgrade over a possible transfer.
“Nigeria midfielder Ogenyi Onazi on the verge of signing for Serbian champions Red Star Belgrade,” Udoh tweeted
