Super Eagles forward, Henry Onyekuru, has revealed that he successfully completed a medical at Paris Saint-Germain before opting instead to join Everton in June 2017.

PSG, who had seen off competition from English and German clubs, thought Onyekuru was about to sign for them after he completed the medical in Paris.

But the 21-year-old striker, who scored 22 goals for Belgian top-flight club, Eupen, in the 2016/2017 season, called off the deal at the 11th hour.

“I did a medical for Paris St-Germain on a Friday and we had to wait until Monday so they could make both signings [me and another player] official.

“Then I spoke to my friends because I have some good friends, and I asked if it was a good idea to play in Paris and they gave me their opinions.

“I also spoke to my mother and she said she just wants me to play because I’m young and still need to improve, and from there the right club will come.

“So I decided to go with my mother’s advice so I just cut the deal off – just like that. I told my agent to call PSG that we are not going ahead with it,” Onyekuru told BBC Sport.
