Super Eagles forward, Henry Onyekuru is keen to remain with Turkish Super Lig champions, Galatasaray amid interest from Greek giants Olympiacos, The Athletic NG reports.

The Nigeria international rejoined Galatasaray on loan in January after failing to secure regular playing berth at French Ligue 1 side, Monaco.

Onyekuru, who linked up with Monaco from Everton last summer made only four league appearances for the principality for the club before the move.

Olympiacos are looking to sign him on loan this summer with a purchase option inserted in the deal.

The 22-year-old is however not interested in the transfer and is determined to remain in Turkey.

“I wanted to stay in Galatasaray last year, but my club (Everton) sold me to Monaco. I almost never played in Monaco,” Onyekuru was quoted by Turkish website Fanatik.

“I do not want to experience the same frustration again.” Onyekuru has scored one (1) goal in seven (7) Turkish super Lig appearance for Galatasaray this season.”
