Super Eagles fringe star Henry Onyekuru has revealed he sensationally turned down a move to French giants PSG in favour of a move to English side Everton.
Onyekuru is on a season long loan deal to Anderlecht from Everton where he penned a five year deal following his 7 million euros transfer from Belgian side Eupen.
However the 20 year old said he could have been playing for French giants PSG as he had already agreed a deal to join the team after which he had his medical, but he opt out of the move two hours later after hearing of interest from Everton.
” As many as 48 teams were battling to sign me, when you consider the amount of teams from January till I decided to join Everton, it was crazy but I believe the move to Everton is best for my career.
” I even had medicals at PSG, but they were a bit slow during talks, and two hours after my medicals, my manager cancelled the deal with them when we heard of the offer from Everton. I was that close to joining PSG”, Onyekuru revealed.
