Everton Loanee Henry Sends Warning To Anderlecht : I Am Not Staying
Nigeria international Henry Onyekuru has decided not to renew his loan deal with Anderlecht despite the Belgian powerhouse reaching an agreement with Everton for an additional season.

The Everton loanee has argued that his relationship with Anderlecht manager Hein Vanhaezebrouck has gone sour and this contributed to the coach's decision not to field him despite returning to fitness in the tail-end of the 2017-18 campaign.

''I was fit, but I did not play. So I'm not staying with Anderlecht,'' said Onyekuru to Het Laatste Nieuws.

''He (Vanhaezebrouck ) has not spoken to me for weeks. I know what he said about me.

''Thanks to the media, I had to learn that I was not ready, so to speak, I have worked very hard in the last few months to come back. This was not enough for some.''

Onyekuru has sensationally revealed that Anderlecht blocked his chances of representing Nigeria at the World Cup.

''Anderlecht knew I needed the World Cup to get a work permit to play in England, and by not making me play, the chances of going to Russia were nil, and so I could not join the Premier League, that may be how Anderlecht hopes to keep me for another year, a ridiculous reasoning: I can go anywhere,'' he added.

Onyekuru scored 10 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions for Anderlecht before sustaining a serious knee injury against Eupen in December 2017.
