Henry Onyekuru

Former Nigeria international, Joseph Yobo has advised Super Eagles forward, Henry Onyekuru to leave French Ligue 1 side, Monaco.

Onyekuru, who was unable to play for Everton due to work permit issues, signed a move to Monaco at the start of the season, but has not been regular.

The versatile forward scored 14 goals in 31 appearances during his one-year loan spell with Galatasaray last season – a feat that landed him his current contract.

But the 22-year-old has made only four appearances for the club, and has been linked with a possible loan move back to Galatasaray in January.

“It was sad he (Onyekuru) couldn’t find a chance to play in Everton,” Yobo, a former Toffees defender told as quoted by CSN.

“He is a great talent .His failure to secure a work permit didn’t allow him play for Everton. The English Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world, but it can be a big disadvantage when you don’t play.

“His performance for Galatasaray last season was exceptional and I expect him to do that with the national team.

“His time in Monaco has not been good and leaving the club is the best option for him.”
