Nigeria midfielder Ogenyi Onazi has joined newly-promoted Serie A side Crotone, signing a three-year deal with the Italian outfit.

Onazi, the 2013 Nations Cup winner, was a free agent after he reportedly terminated his contract at Turkish outfit Denizlispor in July.

Onazi started his professional career at Serie A club Lazio in 2012 where he made 76 Serie A appearances before he left to join Turkish outfit Trabzonspor.

Another Nigerian player, Simeone Nwankwo, plays at the club and it will be a chance for the compatriots to reunite away from the national team.

There are very few things in life that make me happy, but talking and writing Sports has to be at the top. I honed my broadcasting skills at the University of Lagos Radio Station and have free-lanced for platforms like Top Radio and Superscreen TV amongst others. Deji loves running commentaries on Football matches and Athletics, and is now a Junior Sports Writer at Making of Champions. He hopes to become a Sports Agent in the future.
