English Premier League champions Manchester City will loan out Nigeria starlet Chidiebere Nwakali in January to a club in Spain.
Nwakali has recovered from a knee injury which has troubled him for some time now.
“Nwakali will go on loan in January most likely to Spain,” a source close to the Owerri-born player hinted AfricanFootball.com
“He has fully recovered from the knee injury that he suffered much earlier in the year and which made him to struggle in England.
“He will now sign a professional contract with City this month as he will soon be 18. But unlike compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho, City will not apply for a work permit for him in the United Kingdom. Instead, he will go on loan to Spain.”
Nwakali is a versatile midfielder who can play as a defensive or offensive player and he has been capped by Nigeria at U-17, winning the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup with Iheanacho, and as well as playing for the U-20 side, Flying Eagles.
