Super Eagles defensive midfielder rejected a move to China and has revealed why he decided to do so.

Nigeria national team captain John Obi Mikel, striker Odion Jude Ighalo and Brown Ideye are among Super Eagles players that have followed the money tide to China from their clubs in Europe, but Onazi will rather remain in Turkey with Trabzonspor.

“I have finally decided not to go to China despite the mega offers from there. I just told the club’s this morning (Sunday) that I am not interested in leaving Europe now,” Onazi told African Football.

“My reasons are because I have a lot to achieve in Europe, I have my mind here in Europe and I am still focusing on becoming greater in Europe and hope to achieve my aims before I can leave.

“The Chinese clubs kept increasing the offer thinking it’s because of money, but I said no to the move for now.

“I want to be focused so as to achieve my aim here with better opportunities.”
