Nigeria defender Tyronne Ebuehi has asked Portuguese Primera Liga champions Benfica to allow him leave the club on loan this month, reports Completesports.com.
Ebuehi linked up with the Eagles in 2018 but missed the entire campaign after copping a cruciate ligament injury in training.
The 24-year-old has also struggled with his fitness this season and has featured in seven games for the Benfica’s U23 side and made four appearances for the Team B.
According to a report in Portuguese online news hub, abola.pt, Ebuehi is pushing for a loan move to another club before the end of the winter transfer window.
