- Chidozie Awaziem has become the latest father in town
- The Super Eagles defender welcomed a bouncing baby girl
- The 23-year-old got relegated with Leganes this season
Chidozie Awaziem has become a father for the first time as he posted a photo of his newborn baby girl on social media.
The Super Eagles star whose side Leganes relegated at the end of the current La Liga put the disappointment behind him.
The 23-year-old wasted no time in expressing his uttermost joy as he captioned the picture of his baby girl Christel on Instagram: "I can't explain the way I feel right now...thank you God for giving me Christel, Latest dad in town."
Awaziem broke into the Super Eagles team in Lufriendlies against Luxembourg and Mali in 2016 and made the team that played at the 2018 World Cup and the 2019 AFCON.
His only goal in the green and white colours of Nigeria was the 2019 AFCON qualifiers against Seychelles.
He made 26 appearances for Leganes at the just concluded season and he was played more often as a central defender by coach Javier Aguirre.
Awaziem has been linked with a move to another Spanish side, Sevilla and could feature in next season's Champions League competition under Julen Lopetegui.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Spanish La Liga giants Sevilla are reportedly interested in the signing of Super Eagles defender Chidozie Awaziem after the end of his loan spell at Leganes.
The 23-year-old Nigerian footballer played for Leganes at the just concluded Spanish La Liga 2019/20 season in which the club relegated to the second division.
But despite the relegation of Leganes from the first division, the Nigerian is rated among the best players of the season considering his superb performances.
After just two minutes into the match, the Super Eagles defender and goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar had a misunderstanding which led to Enes Unal finding the back of the net for Valladolid.
Awaziem's intended back pass to Cuellar was misjudged as Unal took advantage of the error and slammed the ball into an empty net.
