Chidozie Awaziem

Nigeria defender, Chidozie Awaziem, has rejected a loan move to Turkish club, Caykur Rizespor.

Awaziem spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Spanish club Leganes from Portuguese giants Porto.

Leganes were relegated to the Segunda Division last season putting an end to the possibility of the versatile defender linking up with the Cucumber Growers on a permanent deal.

The 23-year-old made 26 league appearances for Leganes.

Awaziem spent the second half of the 2018/19 season on loan at Rizespor.

According to reports in the Turkish media, he has declined to join Rizespor and is willing to listen to offers from other clubs.
