Henry Onyekuru Completes Olympiakos Move Cheaply

Super Eagles forward Henry Onyekur’s move to Greek giants Olympiakos from As Monaco has now been completed.

The Greek side confirmed the Nigerian winger has signed a four-year contract on their social media handles and official website.

Olympiacos, who will feature in the UEFA Champions League qualifying rounds, paid 4.5 Million Euros for him, which is a huge knockdown price to the 13.5 Million Euros Monaco splashed out two years ago.

That fee is also well below his transfer market value of seven million Euros.

His transfer to Monaco did not go to plan as he failed to establish himself at the French Ligue 1 outfit and he was shipped out on two loan switches to Turkish giants Galatasaray.

Galatasaray did not active the buy-out option to sign him permanently for 4.3 Million Euros at the end of last season. 

Monaco have confirmed Onyekuru’s departure while wishing him the best in the future.
