No Regrets Joining Everton – Onyekuru

Super Eagles Star Henry Onyekuru has revealed that he has no regrets joining Premier League side, Everton.

The 23-year-old joined Everton from Eupen in 2017 after finishing joint top scorer in the Belgian League with 22 goals.

He was immediately sent out on loan due to work permit issues.

 “The first dream is to play in the Premier League, it may not have worked out at Everton but I have no regrets about it,” Onyekuru told BBC Africa Sport.

“When I received offers from top clubs in England I knew back then that I needed a work permit to play”.

“That it didn’t happen then has nothing to do with my talent but red tape that’s beyond my control.”

“I really wanted to go to Arsenal because I spoke to some people there as I was very young then,” he continued.

“It was obvious that I was not going to play without a UK work permit. So, I went to Everton and played in the Champions League through a loan move to Anderlecht”.

Onyekuru is now on the books of Monaco in the French Ligue One.
