Almeria won’t renew Ozornwafor’s loan deal

Defender Valentine Ozornwafor will leave Spanish Segunda side, Almeria at the end of his loan deal.

In Almeria's 20 matches played so far this season, Ozornwafor has made just two substitute appearances, totalling 92 minutes.

The 20-year-old joined Almeria last summer on a season-long loan deal from Galatasaray but the Nigeria U-23 defender has failed to impress at the club since he arrived, according to Turkish daily, Ajansspor.

“He has performed below expectation this season and Almeria won’t be exercising their purchase option of €1.8m to buy the player outrightly,” the daily reported.

Ozornwafor kicked off his career at Enyimba before his move to Galatasaray in July on a four-year deal.
