After his international assignment to Nigeria, the 24-year-old immediately travels to Alanya on a private plane to find out his future
Turkish Super Light club Alanyaspor have signed Chidozie Awaziem under Portuguese club Boavista until the end of the 2021-22 campaign.
Awaziem left the Super Eagles camp in Cape Verde immediately after their 2-1 victory in the second match of their qualifying campaign in Fifa in 2022 to complete the deal before the Turkish summer transfer window closed on Wednesday night.
The former Leganes defender played the entire duration while Victor Osimhen’s strike and an own goal from Kenny Rocha Santos ensured the maximum points for the visitors in Mindelo.
Prior to his invitation to Gernot Rohr’s team earlier this month, the former Porto youth star played three Primeira Liga matches for Boavista.
Awaziem’s arrival is expected to strengthen Alanyaspor’s backline after losing two of their three Super League matches so far this season.
The Nigerian international joins Angola’s Wilson Eduardo and Senegal duo Khouma Babacar and Famara Diedhiou in Bulent Korkmaz’s squad.
They are currently 13th in the table with three points from three games and they host Giresunspor on Sunday for their league game.
‘Boavista FC announce that they have reached an agreement with Alanyaspor from Turkey for the temporary transfer of the player, Chidozie Awaziem, valid until the end of the 2021-22 season’, reads a statement on the club’s website .
“Boavista FC wishes Chidozie Awaziem all the best with personal and professional happiness in this new phase of his career. Good luck, Chidozie.”
