Nigerian players' transfer highlights: Etebo to Watford, West Ham target Onuachu latest, Olise and more, regarded as Nigeria's number one authority on the transfer market, brings you the latest movements, deals as good as done and transfer news involving Nigerian players on Thursday, July 8.

ANS transfer chief broke the news that Super Eagles star Oghenekaro Etebo was set to join Premier League newcomers Watford on a season-long loan with an option to buy.

The Stoke City-owned midfielder would have loved to move to the Hornets on a permanent deal but both parties decided to play safe.

Crystal Palace have pulled off a transfer coup by signing Super Eagles target Michael Olise on a multi-year contract.

The versatile playmaker was courted by a plethora of clubs in the Premier League and abroad before Palace won the race for his signature.
Paul Onuachu's proposed move to the English Premier League is hanging in the balance due to his asking price. exclusively reported around three weeks ago that West Ham United and Brighton & Hove were mulling over a bid for the 27-year-old.

Though Racing Genk's 30 million euros asking price is well within the reach of Premier League clubs, they are dragging their feet over a deal because he has no or very little resale value considering that he would be offered at least a four-year deal for that fee.

Onuachu resumed training at the Belgian Cup winners on Thursday.

Over to Turkey. Super Lig side Sivasspor have reached an agreement with Ukrainian giants Shakhtar Donetsk for the season-long loan of former Flying Eagles striker Olarenwaju Kayode.

Kayode had a successful loan spell at Sivasspor in 2020-2021, scoring 11 goals and providing two assists in 40 games.

Another former Nigeria U20 international in Chuks Akabueze has switched clubs, joining second-tier Bandirmaspor from Umraniyespor.
