NEC Nijmegen Ready To Unleash Liverpool Striker Awoniyi Against PSVNEC Nijmegen coach Peter Hyballa is set to hand a debut to Taiwo Awoniyi when his side tackle Eredivisie powerhouse PSV Eindhoven at the Goffertstadion on Saturday.

The Nigeria U23 international has impressed the coaching staff at training, netting a brace and providing two assists in a friendly game against German sixth-tier outfit FC Kleve during the international break.

It is not certain at this point if Awoniyi will be included in NEC Nijmegen’s starting line-up but it is all but confirmed that he will make the 18-man squad.

The 19-year-old is spending the whole of this season on loan at NEC after failing to obtain a UK work permit.

He was one of Nigeria’s alternate players at the Olympic Games until he was ordered to return to Europe by Liverpool, so he can complete his transfer to NEC.
