Super Eagles Onyekuru reportedly close to joining Galatasary for 3rd loan spell

Henry Onyerkuru is set to complete his third loan spell with Turkish giants Galatasary with an option of making the deal permanent at the end of the season, Leadership.

The Super Eagles striker spent six months with Ligue 1 side Monaco and could not break into the first team, managing to make just four appearances since last September.

And it is understood that Galatasary and the player have reached an agreement for another loan spell with the Super Lig side with the option to buy.

The former Everton star played the entire 2018-19 and the second half of the 2019-20 season with the Turkish club and won the league and Cup double for the Turk Telekom Stadium outfit

The 23-year-old signed for Everton for £7million in 2017 but was loaned out to Belgian side Anderlecht and Galatasaray before Monaco made his deal permanent in 2019.

The Nigerian forward was joint top-scorer with Belgian side Eupen, scoring 22 goals in the 2016-17 season before making a move to the Premier League.

Onyekuru has been struggling under Niko Kovac at Monaco and reports claim the Nigerian international is looking to revive his career with Galatasary.

He has scored two international goals in 12 appearances for the national team and was part of the bronze medal-winning squad in AFCON 2019.
