Eddy Onazi Dismisses Quit ReportsNigeria international Eddy Onazi insists he is happy to extend his contact with Lazio amid reports he is set to quit the capital side at the end of the current campaign in June.

Just recently, Onazi, 20, put pen - to - paper on an additional two - year contract with The Biancocelesti . He now has contractual obligations with Lazio until the end of the 2016 season.

Speculation was rife before his contract extension that the former My People FC midfielder could be on his way to White Hart Lane to hook up with Tottenham Hotspur.

Nonetheless, the transfer window shut on January 31, and Eddy Onazi continued his collaboration with the Europa League campaigners.

Eddy Onazi told allnigeriasoccer.com: ''It is not correct I am quitting Lazio. There wasn't a time I said such. I love Lazio and have never hidden my desire to play for this club. I have a contract with Lazio which I intend to honor.''

Having impressed manager Vladimir Petković in pre- season, Onazi was subsequently drafted into the first team. And despite his lack of playing opportunities in the Serie A, the youngster is willing to wait for his chance.

''Lazio is a great club with great tradition. I came through the ranks here and I am a part of the club. I will continue to give 100 percent to the club whenever I am fielded,''said Onazi

Eddy Onazi was a second half substitute in Thursday's Europa League fixture against Germans Borussia M'gladbach.

Lazio are now through to the last 16 of the competition and they have a date with another Bundesliga side Stuttgart.
