City’s Nwakali off to Spain
English Premier League champions Manchester City are planning to loan out Nigeria’s Chidiebere Nwakali to a Spanish club in January.
The Nigerian starlet, who was snapped up by the English powerhouse last year, will be loaned out to gain the much-needed experience and regular football and the destination seems to be La Liga.
According to Africanfootball.com, a source close to the midfielder said: “Nwakali will go on loan in January most likely to Spain.”
“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.”
