Onyewu to Fenerbahce – Deal not done

As reported on goal.com, Oguchi Onyewu’s transfer is not yet done.  (Finishing the deal while in South Africa on international duty didn’t make sense and made me skeptical of initial reports.)  According to his agent, the Turkish giants are interested, but Birmingham City, Monaco, and others are still in contention.

Onyewu has shown a lot during the Confederations Cup, especially in tonight’s win over Spain.  The move to Turkey wouldn’t be bad–it’s a step up from Belgium–but I’m hoping his recent form will raise his stock enough to attract some attention from more teams in bigger leagues.

Onyewu to Fenerbahce?


Sky Sports is reporting that Oguchi Onyewu has signed a three-year deal with Turkish giants Fenerbahce. No offense to the Turkcell Süper Lig, but if this is true, I must admit that I’m a little disappointed. I was hoping for a move to one of the top four leagues.
