Trabzonspor Cite Awaziem's N540 Million Yearly Wages As Stumbling Block To Deal
Turkish Cup winners Trabzonspor have pulled out of the race to sign Nigerian defender Chidozie Awaziem.

Trabzonspor, coached by former Chelsea midfielder of Nigerian descent Eddie Newton, looked to seal a deal for the Super Eagles star after he was proposed by his agent.

But the Board has not approved the signing citing the player's wage demands as a stumbling block, according to Turkish sports daily Fanatik.

Awaziem reportedly demanded one million euros (N540 million) a year to play for Trabzonspor next season.

The 23-year-old has to return to his parent club Porto and await further developments.

He has failed to establish himself as a regular after he was promoted to Porto's first team and was farmed out on loan to Nantes, Rizespor and CD Leganes in the last three seasons.

A member of the Super Eagles squads to the 2018 World Cup and the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, his contract with Porto runs out at the end of the 2021-2022 season.
