Onazi quits Trabzonspor over unpaid wages

Nigeria international Ogenyi Onazi has terminated his contract with Turkish club Trabzonspor over unpaid wages, the BCC has reported.

The 24-year-old reportedly played the final two months of last season without pay.

His agent and former Nigeria international Ayodele Stephen Makinwa says they have written to the club with their decision.

Makinwa said, “Now we are looking for a quick solution with regards his next destination.

“We have an agreement with the club which strictly states that the player has a right to terminate his contract if the club failed to pay him for two months or more.

“We’ve taken a decision based on the violation of this agreement as Onazi is being owed for more than the stipulated period.”

Onazi only joined Trabzonspor on a four-year deal from Italian side Lazio last August.

It was learnt that the Turkish club refused to comment on the situation when contacted by BBC Sport. Algeria’s Carl Medjani and Ghana striker Majeed Waris both recently quit the Turkish club following a dispute over unpaid wages.
