Galatasaray of Turkey striker, Henry Onyekuru has confessed that he is already seriously thinking about extending his stay witrh the Turkish Super Lig club, which he joined on loan from Everton of England.
Onyekuru’s move to Gala came after a stormy similar spell on loan at RSC Anderlecht of Belgium, but the Super Eagles rookie says he is having a comfortable time in Istanbul.
With the settings Onyekuru has seen at Galatasaray and Andrlecht turning out to be drastically different, footballlive.ng gathered that the former KAS Eupen of Belgium winger-cum-attacker is now thinking of staying put at his present base.
In contrast with the spat that occasioned his unceremonious exit from Andelrecht, which he accused of blocking his hope of playing for Nigeria at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Onyekuru is singing praises to the crew, players and fans of Galatasaray.
Correlatively, the fleet-footed youngster admits he is seriously thinking of getting an extension to his loan deal in Turkey, as Onyekuru admits he will welcome a long-term deal with Galatasary.
Onyekuru admitted he would have loved to stick with Everton in the English Premier League, as he always dreamt about plying his trade in Queensland once he grows up, with Arsenal his favourite club back then, but admits work permit issues have now put that hope on hold.
Coincidentally, the Istanbul-based club’s boss, Fatih Terim has openly stated how pleased he is with Onyekuru’s form since his arrival in the summer and, with the youngster knocking off his past injury woes to hit home a haul of goals, his days might yet be longer with Gala.
Onyekuru stressed: “I’m very happy here. I love Galatasaray. My dream is to play in the Premier League, but I’m having some problems with the work permit. If they agree with Everton, I will stay at Galatasaray.”
