The Nigerian who had a breakthrough season last time out with Manchester City in the league was said to have visa issues and hence won’t make the tour but that insinuation has been put to rest by the club.

Manchester City confirmed his availability for their tour via their social media handle putting to rest various report that he will miss the tour where they will take on Bayern Munich and Manchester United in two high profile friendly game.
