Boavista FC announced that it has “reached an agreement with Alanyaspor from Turkey for the temporary transfer of the player, Chidozie Awaziem, valid until the end of the 2021-22 season,”
“Boavista FC wishes Chidozie Awaziem all the best personal and professional happiness in this new stage of his career. Good luck, Chidozie,” statement on the club’s website reads
Awaziem is expected to make his debut for Alanyaspor when they host Giresunspor in a Turkish Super Lig game on Monday.
Alanyaspor are currently in the 13th position on the table.
