Ogenyi Onazi reveals why he snubbed China move


Super Eagles midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi, has said he rejected “a mega” transfer to China.

Onazi turned down the chance to play in the Far East, alongside international team-mates, John Obi Mikel and Brown Ideye, who play in the Chinese Super League.

The Trabzonspor of Turkey enforcer, says he is not keen on leaving Europe just yet.

“I have finally decided not to go to China despite the mega offers from there. I just told the club’s this morning (Sunday) that I am not interested in leaving Europe now,” he said.

“My reasons are because I have a lot to achieve in Europe, I have my mind here in Europe and I am still focusing on becoming greater in Europe and hope to achieve my aims before I can leave.

“The Chinese clubs kept increasing the offer thinking it’s because of money, but I said no to the move for now.

“I want to be focused so as to achieve my aim here with better opportunities.”
