One of the two Nigerian footballers left at the Istanbul giants may be on his way out of the club in the coming days to make room for a new signing
Galatasaray desperately want to send out Nigerian defender Valentine Ozornwafor on loan within the next few days.
The Turkish Super Lig side signed Danish defender Victor Nelsson from Copenhagen for a reported €7 million but could not register the 22-year-old.
This is because the Yellow-Reds have filled up their available quota for foreign players and need to quickly sell at least one before the authorities slap them with a ban.
And according to the Milliyet, former Enyimba centre-back Ozornwafor is the foreigner Galatasaray have decided to move on, with Denizlispor looking like the possible destination for the 22-year-old.
Ozornwafor has been on the books of Galatasaray since 2019 but has struggled to break into the first-team picture, making just one league appearance in that time.
The defender spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Almeria, but he didn’t enjoy much game time, spending just 214 minutes on the pitch, spread across four league matches.
Ozornwafor represented Nigeria at the under-20 level in the 2019 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations and the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
The Super Eagles hopeful made his unofficial debut for the Nigerian national team in a 1-0 friendly defeat to Cameroon on 4 June 2021.
