Super Eagles Vice Captain, William Troost-Ekong has advised Paul Onuachu to continue working hard, after failing to secure his dream transfer.

Onuachu scored 35 goals for KRC Genk last season and was tipped to make a move to bigger clubs in Europe, before the end of last summer transfer window.

Arsenal, Lyon and West Ham reportedly shown interest in the big striker, but none of the rumours materialized.

After a disappointing start to the season, Onuachu is now back to his goalscoring best, hitting eleven for Genk in the last eight games, including a hat-trick against Saraing over the weekend

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Ekong said: “This lad (Onuachu) scored 35 goals last season, and I can’t believe a big Club hasn’t signed him up. But he has to continue working hard.”

Onuachu will be in action again for Genk this Thursday. The Belgian giants will take on Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League.
