Super Eagles star Ogenyi Onazi has joined Turkish Super League side Denizlispor as a free agent hours after announcing his departure from Trabzonspor on the same day.

The Nigerian football star who won the Africa Cup of Nations title in 2013 spent most part of 2019 on the sidelines due to the terrible injury he suffered on December 24, 2018.

It took the former Lazio player about 252 days before recovering from the Achilles tendon rupture problems - missing 29 crucial games in the process.
