Midfielder Izunna Uzochukwu is set to become the latest Nigerian to move to China after he quit Danish club OB Odense recently.

“It is 90% a done deal that Izunna will next play in China,” a top source informed SCORENigeria

“It’s no secret he has failed to settle at Odense, who he joined in 2016.”

The 27-year-old defensive midfielder won a handful of caps with the Super Eagles when Sunday Oliseh was in charge.

He also posted a brief stint at Russian club Amkar Perm after six years at Danish club Midtylland.

The Nigerian contingent in China include Mikel Obi, Odion Ighalo, Obafemi Martins, Brown Ideye and Leke James.
