UEL qualifiers: Adana list Babajide, drop Onyekuru

Nigerian winger Henry Onyekuru’s future at Adana Demirspor appears uncertain just days after his €3.5m transfer from Olympiacos as he has been dropped from the team’s UEFA Europa League qualifiers list, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

The 26-year-old who had a successful loan spell with Adana last season, was acquired permanently by the Turkish club after they exercised their option to buy him that was included in his loan contract.

However, recent developments have raised doubts about Onyekuru’s place in the team as he was surprisingly omitted from Adana Demirspor’s European roster for the upcoming Europa Conference League qualifiers against Cluj.

Reports from some local media outlets have taken note of this exclusion and speculate that it could be an indication of his uncertain status within the team.

Despite this speculation, the reason behind the omission of the former Monaco forward remains undisclosed at this time.

Onyekuru’s impressive performances during his loan spell at Adana Demirspor made him a valuable asset, prompting the club’s decision to secure his services on a permanent basis.

However, recent occurrences have caused supporters and analysts to doubt his place in the team’s intentions for the upcoming season. Onyekuru has been back training with the club after they secured him permanently from Olympiacos at the end of his loan spell.

As the scenario builds, all eyes will be on coach Patrick Kliert and the club’s administration to see how they deal with the uncertainty surrounding Onyekuru’s future.

His absence from the European squad raises concerns regarding his possible participation in other tournaments and Adana Demirspor’s general plan for the forthcoming season.

His compatriot David Babajide who also plays as a winger made the list for the qualifiers however and would be optimistic of his chances.
