Nigeria international, Ogenyi Onazi is reportedly close to signing a three-year-deal with Serbian Champions, Red Star Belgrade.

According to ESPN journalist, Colin Udoh, the 27-year-old is currently in talks with Red Star officials, and he’s expected to leave Denizlispor this summer as negotiation is at an advanced stage.

It’s been a difficult last few years for Onazi who was out for the majority of 2019 due to a knee injury. The Super Eagles star only joined Denizlispor from Trabzonspor in January, but he made just seven appearances in all competitions for the Turkish club.
