West Ham striker target obtains work permit

| claim that Nigeria forward Henry Onyekuru has got his work permit visa approved to the UK and he still wishes to play in the Premier League in the coming season.

The 20-year KAS Eupen of Belgium star has been in Paris with his representatives studying the many offers tabled for him.

A source informed SCORENigeria: “Henry has been in Paris, he is there with his agents.

“He has been granted his visa to UK and he is now studying all the offers and possibilities with his handlers.

“His first choice is a Premier League club.”

Thre report claims Arsenal remain “a serious option” according to the player’s agent.

Game time will be one of the priorities for Onyekuru because he wishes to play with Nigeria at next year’s World Cup in Russia. Top French Ligue 1 sides led by PSG, German Bundesliga clubs like Schalke 04 as well as Belgian champions Anderlecht are also on the hot chase for the forward.

    Well thats one “complication” out the way,whats the next one stopping us signing him.If he wants game time there’s no point in going to Arsenal.

  • ennate says:

    I believe this report from Nigeria is wrong. He has received a visitor’s visa which means he can enter the country to talk to clubs. To get a UK work permit his employing club needs to receive a “Governing Body Endorsement”, or GBE from the FA and submit it to the Home Office.

    I really want this one to go quiet until we have signed him.

    I know Eupen is, well, Eupen, but look at the you tube Scoutnation footage – he is very fast, very skilful and actually knows where the goal is!

    ScoreNigeria is probably the new name of owngoalnigeria will believe it when I see it, it doesn’t make sense that a player without a club would apply for a work permit themselves but hey who knows ?
