  • Ramon Azeez has been thrown out at Spanish side Granada after he refused to go out on loan this season
  • The Super Eagles star will now hope to get another club in Europe probably in January next year so as to help him get chance in the Nigerian team
  • Azeez played for the Super Eagles at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but he has not gotten enough chance since Rohr became coach

Super Eagles midfielder Ramon Azeez has been thrown into the transfer market as a free agent after Spanish club Granada decided to terminate his contract in heartbreaking situation.

Following his impressive performances at Lower League side Lugo, Granada signed the Super Eagles star in 2019 and was an important member of the squad then.

However, things turned the other way round for Ramon Azeez last season at Granada as the club decided to send the Nigerian footballer out on loan.

And at La Liga Smartbank side FC Cartagena where Ramon Azeez finished the term on loan, the Nigerian managed to play 16 games and helped the side to escape relegation.

According to the report on Guardian and Soccernet, Granada chiefs wanted Ramon Azeez to go out on loan again this season which the Nigerian refused.

His refusal forced the club's eggheads to terminate his contract and he would have to wait until January next year before possibly joining another club.

Granada's statement

“From today, they (Azeez and Bravo) are free agents.
“We looked for ways out for them, and they did not accept those options. We made numerous efforts and made calls to a multitude of places.”

Meanwhile, this latest development is expected to affect Ramon Azeez getting a call into the Super Eagles for subsequent games and he must work hard to get himself attached as soon as possible.

Ike Ugbo wants to play for Super Eagles

Earlier, had reported how Ike Ugbo who currently plays for Belgian side Genk as a forward has made it clear that he wants to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria and not the Three-Lions of England.

The 22-year-old who started his professional career at Premier League side Chelsea sees himself not getting the chance to play for England national team and will not want to waste his time.

Over the years, Nigeria and England have engaged in battle on the allegiances of some players, and recently, the European nation triumphed as they got the trio of Fikayo Tomori, Tammy Abraham and Bukayo Saka.

The Nigerian Football Federation tried their best to make these players play for the Super Eagles, but they turned their backs on Nigeria and picked England.
