Nigeria international Chidozie Awaziem recently joined Spanish La Liga Santander side Club Deportivo Leganes on loan from FC Porto.
Having been unveiled by Leganes on Tuesday, Awaziem is confident of helping Los Pepineros make a good case for themselves.
The defender teamed up with FC Porto in 2014 but has been enjoying loan spells in the last couple of seasons to ensure he gets more playing time and help him continue his development.
Porto decided he will not play a key role in their setup and, therefore, sent him out on another loan spell.
The ex Elkanemi Warriors defender has reiterated the desire to play an important role for Leganes in the 2019/20 season.
“I want to thank the club for the confidence they have in me. I am very happy to be here. I will do my best to have a good season and help the club,” Awaziem said at the presentation ceremony.
“My teammates have welcomed me very well. They are very good players. There is the language problem, but I will try to adapt as soon as possible.
“I talked to Omeruo, he is my partner in the national team, he told me some club things, he explained the system, the players, how the Leganes was . Also with Casillas in Porto, he told me he was happy for me to join Leganés.”
Chidozie Awaziem, who can play as a central defender or from right back is expected to provide options for Leganes manager Mauricio Pellegrino when the going gets tough.
He spent second half of last season on loan at Caykur Rizespor where he made 16 appearances in the Turkish Super Lig after joining in January.
