German side Eintracht Frankfurt and Augsburg have both turned down the chance to take Manchester City Nigerian midfielder Chidiebere Nwakali on loan for the rest of the season.
Manchester City are eager for Nwakali to play at a higher level after his first taste of professional football in Norway with relegated side Start, where he thrived after failed loan spells with Malaga and Girona in Spain.
Authoritative German news outlet BILD report that the Nigeria youth international was first offered to Eintracht Frankfurt but the Bundesliga side declined to take him on loan.
According to BILD Augsburg were also approached to take the services of the 20 year old who had a fairly average time on loan at Norwegian side Start, but just like Eintracht Frankfurt they refused to take him.
He is back training at Man City before he moves out on another loan which could determine if he is going to be offered fresh terms or otherwise. For now Norwegian champions Rosenborg are reportedly the only side keen on his services but City are yet to decide.
