Onyedika pens long term deal at FC Midtjylland but eyes move to a “big league”


Raphael Onyedika says he wants to play in a “big league” someday but is focused on ensuring the team wins the league title at the end of the season.

Onyedika, 20, has had an impressive start to his senior career at the club which he joined in 2020 from an amateur side in Nigeria.
On Monday, the club announced the Midfielder had penned a new deal that’ll keep him at the MCH Arena until 2026.
The club’s official website disclosed the news of Raphael Onyedika’s contract extension.
The defensive midfielder has scored three goals and registered one assist in 24 appearances across all competitions this season.
He was voted the young player of the month in October for top performances which he crowned with two goals and an assist.
“It’s a really good feeling to sign a new contract in Central Jutland,” said the young midfielder.
“I’m happy and proud of that, but most of all I’m grateful for the club and all that they have done for me in recent years. I would like to pay that back by helping the team in every match, says the eternally humble Onyedika, who praises the people on the team:
“It’s a great team to be a part of. There are many talented teammates and coaches and they have really contributed to my development this season. I’m sure it will continue.
“Of course I have ambitions to be as good as possible and play in a big league one day. But right now I just focus on being in Central Jutland and helping the team to victory. I hope to win titles here and that is the biggest goal this season,” concludes Onyedika.
