Liverpool Loanee Awoniyi Loses Spot To Little Known Nigerian Forward Arnaut At NEC Nijmegen


Liverpool loanee Taiwo Awoniyi has lost his starting spot at Dutch side NEC Nijmegen to little known Nigerian forward Arnaut Groenveld Danjuma.


Awoniyi is on a season long loan from English Premier League side Liverpool to NEC Nijmegen, but he has failed to get games for the team which was primarily the reason why he was loaned out by Liverpool.

Arnaut has been preferred by coach Peter Hyballa ahead of Awoniyi in the attack of the team in their last three league games.

Blessed with searing pace and amazing dribbling abilities, Arnaut was born in Lagos to a Dutch father and a Nigerian mother, and he is widely regarded as one of the top emerging talent in the Dutch Eredivisie.

His international future will no doubt caused a stir between Nigeria and the Netherlands, if he continue to progress at the speed with which he is moving at the moment.
