Super Eagles Star Tyronne Ebuehi Set For Benfica Return
Super Eagles star, Tyronne Ebuehi, is set to return to Benfica since the two clubs couldn’t reach an agreement for the Nigeria star player.
The Nigerian international had joined Benfica from Ado Den Haag in 2018 but could not play for the Eagles due to a knee injury that kept him out for almost two years.
Ebuehi spent the season on loan at Twente from Benfica.
Meanwhile, following his return, he could not find a way into Benfica’s first team and was sent out on loan to Twente. A return to the Dutch top-flight offered him a fresh start, and it turned out to be a good move.
Ebuehi played 33 times in the league for Twente with one goal and one assist to his name. However, despite his impressive performance, he won’t be playing at the club next season.
The Reds have an option to make Ebuehi’s deal permanent, but according to Tijmen Van Wissing, per Twente fans, Twente cannot afford to pay Benfica’s asking price.
Although the Dutch club are ready to take him on another loan deal, Benfica are only interested in a permanent sale.
It’s not clear yet if Ebuehi will now fight for his place at Benfica or the Portuguese team will sell him to another club, as reported by Soccernet.
