Everton’s new boy, Henry Onyekuru, has revealed that former Nigeria international, Peter Osaze Odemwingie, influenced his decision to sign for the Toffees.
Onyekuru’s move from KAS Eupen to Goodison Park was confirmed this week.
The 20-year-old claims he would have joined another Premier League club, if he wanted more money.
“Before making the decision I seek some advice from Nigeria ex players like Osaze Odemwingie, and he gave me some advice you know. I have some other clubs you know ready to offer more than what Everton did.
“But I begged with my agent I need to play inside the pitch and not just the financial aspect for my career. I need a coach that will push me to make a good career for me. So I chose Everton because the coach really wants me and I am going to take a loan to Anderlecht, so it’s good for my career,” Onyekuru said.
