Footballer, Ogenyi Onazi denied permit to play for Birmingham City

Nigeria international Ogenyi Onazi has been denied a work permit to play for English Championship side Birmingham City.


Birmingham had agreed terms with the 24-year-old to sign him from Turkish club Trabzonspor.

However the Football Association turned down a first application for a work permit for Onazi last week.

An appeal made by the club was rejected on Wednesday despite Onazi being a regular in the Nigeria national team.

 The player and his representatives are bitterly disappointed that the panel rejected an appeal.

Onazi joined current club Trabzonspor from Lazio last year and scored twice in 27 Turkish Super Lig matches last season.
