After a year without a club, forgotten Super Eagles star eye Real Zaragoza move

Free agent Ramon Azeez is interested in teaming up with Spanish Segunda Division side Real Zaragoza if reports from the country’s media are anything to go by.

Azeez has been without a club since August 31, 2021, when Granada terminated his contract.

Despite his tremendous experience in Spanish football, Azeez has not been able to attract serious suitors over the last two transfer windows.

A combative defensive midfielder, Azeez has 71 La Liga games, and 105 Segunda Division matches under his belt, with four goals scored in each championship.

And according to Sport Aragon, the 29-year-old enforcer has sanctioned his agents to open up a negotiations channel with Real Zaragoza.

Consequently, Azeez has been offered to the six-time Copa Del Rey winners in recent weeks.

It is believed that Real Zaragoza have not given Azeez’s representatives a clear answer, though. While the Aragon-based club values the possibilities offered by the player and his experience, they have postponed any transfer move until the winter.

A Nigeria international since 2014, Azeez has six caps for the Super Eagles. The former Almeria star’s last game for Nigeria, though, was as a second-half substitute in a 4-2 win away to Lesotho in November 2019.
