Breaking!!! Nigerian Footballer, Ogenyi Onazi Denied Work Permit To Join Birmingham (Photo)

Super Eagles’ Ogenyi Onazi has been denied work permit to play for English Championship side Birmingham City.

The club, Birmingham had agreed terms with him to sign him from Turkish club Trabzonspor, however the Football Association turned down a first application for a work permit for Onazi last week.

An appeal made by the club was rejected again today despite Onazi being a regular in the Nigeria national team.

Nigeria’s failure to qualify for the past two editions of the Nations Cup has affected his chances of securing a work permit to play in the English Championship. Despite appearing in over 80% of the national team games, Onazi failed to earn a permit after the FA considered Nigeria’s world ranking in the past two years.
