The Nigerian midfielder transfer will be official this weekend.
We have already discussed this in our May 7 issue, Ghent has recently been very interested in Uche Agbo services. The Nigerian defensive midfielder has not been seen in Standard since Michelle's return home. Borrowed last winter at Rayo Vallecano, Agbo returned to the Academy this summer, but knew full well that he would be in transit.
The first wish of a player who has always been to stay in La Liga was waiting for offers to no avail. Getafe tried a loan attempt, but for the median leader, it was not a question, not a start in Turkey in Denizlispore, which did not favor the player.
On July 29, we wrote that Gent was still thinking about Agbo after Essiti left for PAOK Thessaloniki. In recent days, both clubs have negotiated the most secret to reach a final agreement leading to the transfer of the Nigerian Ghelamco Arena. Uche Agbo had not yet negotiated the terms of his contract before committing to Ghent, who will play the Europa League hurdles against the Croatian side of Rijeka. Medical tests can be performed in the coming hours, with the player already emptying his locker at the Academy.
In Standard, the degreasing operation continues after the departure of Ochoa, Kosanovic, Agbo's turn comes.
