In-form Super Eagles youngster Henry Onyekuru says he will like to move to a club where he is assured of playing football regularly.

Onyekuru shot himself to prominence in the football world following his outstanding season with KAS Eupen, where he finished as joint-top scorer of the Belgian league with 25 goals.

His scintillating form did not go unnoticed, with Premier League sides like Arsenal, Westham United, Westbrom Albion, Everton and Southampton queuing up for his services.

But the 20-year-old Nigerian who is on international duty with the Super Eagles, says his first priority is playing time as he is reportedly set to leave Eupen.

“The first and most important thing for a player is to get playing time. I’m still young and I still have a long career to pursue but now I need to play,” Onyekuru began on KweseESPN

“My agents are in talks with top clubs in the Premier League, Bundesliga, French league and others. If they accept our terms, then I’ll make a decision.

“It’s not just about going to a big club and sitting on the bench. It’s not good for me, or being loaned to a club where I won’t play or where I will struggle to play.

“The money can come later but for now, I just want to play to improve, not just to play for a big club,” he explains.

He further stated that his desire is to join a club where he can contribute to the team, win titles and not fight against relegation.

He says: “It was very hard for me last season in Belgium because we just got promoted and our first objective was to stay in the league.

“Sometimes I would score two goals and we would end up losing the game. That was tough for me. It was just God’s favor that helped me because finishing 13th in the league but emerging joint top scorer was just amazing.

“So I won’t like to go to a club where I will fight again just to stay in the league. I want to win trophies and if I can win trophies at my age, it will be good for me.”
