Cypriot First Division side, Omonia Nicosia have announced the signing of Super Eagles Goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, on a one-year loan deal.
The 20-year old moved to Cyprus side, Famagusta, last season on loan from Deportivo La Coruna and will play his 2019/2020 season with another Cyprus side.
“We announce that an agreement has been reached to acquire the 20-year-old Nigerian goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, in the form of borrowing from Deportivo La Coruna,” Omonia stated on their official website.
“He played in the first and second teams of Deportivo La Coruna and as promising in Elche and Anorthosis.
“He is active international in the men national team of his homeland, (Nigeria), recording so far 13 caps.
“In 2013 he won the U17 World Cup.
“We welcome Francis Uzoho to the Omonia family and we wish him every success.”
Uzoho was the first choice Goalkeeper for the Super Eagles at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia but have since lost his place in the team, as he is yet to get playing time at the ongoing 2019 AFCON tournament in Egypt.
