Super Eagles midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi says he would join English club, Birmingham City in the January transfer window.
Onazi, who was in the Super Eagles squad that tackled the Indomitable Lions of Cameroun yesterday for a Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier, was denied work permit by the British
Home Office last month thus delaying his ambition of taking his game to the birthplace of modern football.
Birmingham’s Manager, Harry Redknapp had hoped to make the 24-year-old his sixth signing of the summer transfer window, but he was denied an application for a work permit, a decision Birmingham appealed without success.
England survived a scare as they came from behind to beat Slovakia at Wembley and take a giant stride towards qualification for next summer’s World Cup in Russia.
