Official : CD Leganes Loan In Super Eagles Star From Porto
La Liga side CD Leganes have confirmed the signing of Super Eagles defender Chidozie Awaziem on a season-long loan from Portuguese setup Porto.

The versatile defender was outstanding at the last Africa Cup of Nations, making the right-back spot his own after Abdullahi Shehu suffered an injury in their opener against Burundi.

Awaziem joined Porto in the 2014-15 season from local club Junior Elkanemi and has played 15 games for their first team, scoring one goal.

The 22-year-old has signed for Leganes after a recent loan spell at ├žaykur Rizespor, for whom he made 16 appearances in the second half of the 2018-2019 campaign.

He made his Champions League debut for Porto in a 3-2 win at Galatasaray in December 2018.

Awaziem, who will wear the number 12 jersey , is expected to resume training soon under the guidance of manager Mauricio Pellegrino.

He is the second Nigeria international defender to join Leganes in the summer transfer window after Kenneth Omeruo.
