Henry Onyekuru leaves AS Monaco to Galatasaray.
AS Monaco and Galatasaray have both this afternoon confirmed a loan deal involving Nigerian attacker Henry Onyekuru.
The 22-year-old joins the Turkish side on loan until the end of the season without an option to buy.
It will be the 22-year-old’s second loan spell in Turkey as he shone for Galatasaray last season when he was still at English club Everton.
Henry Onyekuru scored 14 goals in 35 appearances for Galatasaray who went on to win the Turkish championship.
Onyekuru joined AS Monaco on a permanent deal from Everton last summer, but struggled to enter into Leonardo Jardim’s plans.
It had been thought that Robert Moreno might give him another shot following his predecessor’s sacking, but it was not to be.
