Nigeria midfielder Ogenyi Onazi is ready to make his first appearance for Turkish Super Lig outfit, Denizlispor against champions Galatasaray on Sunday.

Onazi signed an 18-month deal with Denizilspor on Wednesday following the termination of his contract with former club Trabzonspor.

After coming back from a long injury layoff and being restricted to just cameo appearances for Trabzonspor, both parties opted to part ways as the Nigeria international seeks more playing time.

The 27-year-old was not in the squad for the Turkish Cup clash against Trabzonspor on Thursday but now looks poised to make an appearance in this weekend’s match.

The former Lazio midfielder completed his first training with Denizlispor on Friday and is eager to make his debut for the club. After the session, he took to his Instagram page to say “First training done, ready for Sunday game”.

Onazi will hope he can revive his career at Denizlispor after playing only a handful of matches since December 2018 when he ruptured his Achilles tendon.
