The Nigerian star had an impressive loan spell with Adana Demirspor and recently penned a permanent deal with the Turkish club
Henry Onyekuru’s future at Adana Demirspor appears uncertain just days after his 3.5 million euros transfer from Olympiacos, Soccernet.ng reports.
The Nigerian winger, who had a successful loan spell with Adana last season, was acquired permanently by the Turkish club after they exercised their option to buy him.
However, recent developments have raised doubts about Onyekuru’s place in the team as the 26-year-old midfielder was surprisingly omitted from Adana Demirspor’s European roster for the upcoming Europa Conference League qualifiers against Cluj.
Reports from some local media outlets have taken note of this exclusion and speculate that it could be an indication of his uncertain status within the team.

Despite this speculation, the main reason behind the omission of the former Monaco forward remains undisclosed at this time.
Onyekuru’s impressive performances during his loan spell at Adana Demirspor made him a valuable asset, prompting the club’s decision to secure his services on a permanent basis.
However, recent occurrences have caused supporters and analysts to doubt his place in the team’s intentions for the upcoming season.
As the scenario builds, all eyes will be on coach Patrick Kluifert and the club’s administration to see how they deal with the uncertainty surrounding Onyekuru’s future.
His absence from the European squad raises concerns regarding his possible participation in other tournaments and Adana Demirspor’s general plan for the forthcoming season.
