One cap Super Eagles forward Imoh Ezekiel has turned down a lucrative offer from an unnamed Chinese team and is set to stay with his present loan side Anderlecht of Belgium.

22 year of Ezekiel is not getting games at the Europa League campaigners and it was widely thought off that he will fancy the chance of moving to China where he will make more money than he is presently making in Belgium.

However after discussions with his representatives and his primary owners Al-Arabi of Qatar he opted against a move to the Far East as he believes that will end any dream he has of moving to a big European team.

Already Al- Arabi are reportedly due €100,000 for breaching a part of Ezekiel’s loan deal that stipulates that if he doesn’t play 75% of their games Anderlecht will pay a fine for reducing his market value.

Ezekiel did not travel with Anderlecht yesterday for their Europa League game against Anderlecht which they won 1-2 against Olympiacos to progress to the round of 16 on a 3-2 aggregate score.
