Super Eagles midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi, joined Turkish Super Lig side Denizlispor on a one-and-a-half-year deal on Wednesday.
The midfielder, who had six months left on his contract with fellow Turkish side Trabzonspor, moved for an undisclosed fee.
Denizlispor confirmed the switch on their Twitter page.
“Welcome Onazi! Our club signed a 1.5-year contract with Nigerian player Ogenyi Eddy Onazi, with one-year option,” Denizlispor said.
Trabzonspor also took to Twitter to thank the Nigerian for his time while at the club.
He joined Trabzonspor from Lazio for €3.5m in 2016.
“We thank Onazi for his contributions and wish him success in his career. All the best Ogenyi Onazi,” Trabzonspor tweeted.
Onazi was a regular at Trabzonspor in his first two seasons there, before getting injured in December 2018, which ruled him out for almost a year.
He also took to Instagram to express his excitement at moving to Denizlispor.
“The year started with blessing. Denizli I am here, let’s make the difference. I can’t wait for my first game,” he added.
He also posted another message, thanking Trabzonspor fans for his time at the club.
“My gratitude and loyalty goes to the wonderful fans of this great club Tranbzonspor. I will never forget the love, respect and passion you guys have shown me from day one. I already have a special place in my heart for each and everyone of you. I wish you all happiness because you deserve to be happy and good luck for the rest of the season,”he added.
Meanwhile, Onazi is in line to face his former club Trabzonspor when they meet Denizlispor in the first leg of the Turkish Cup Round of 16 tie on Thursday (today).
