Super Eagles midfielder, Mikel Agu wants to be guaranteed regular playing time at parent club FC Porto, even as the midfielder returned to first team training with the Portuguese side ahead of the new season, AOIFootball.com reports.
The 25-year-old midfielder, who spent last season on loan at Turkish club Bursaspor, is reportedly seeking assurance on his future with the Portuguese club amid interests from top European clubs.
AOIFootball.com gathered exclusively from a reliable source that although the Portuguese club wants him to stay, the player still wants to be guaranteed regular playing time as he bids to get back with the national team after being left out of Nigeria’s 2018 world cup party.
“For now he is currently training with the first team in Portugal. They currently want him to stay but he will sit down and ask for a guarantee on his future; otherwise, he will look for another club. But this time it will be a permanent transfer,” the source disclosed.
Agu caught the eye of many during his time at Bursaspor as he impressed in the holding midfielder role, scoring twice in 23 games and adding one assist to his name.
He was also impressive with his overall play ranking first for passes completed, interceptions and most tackles won of all players in Bursaspor, whilst also not committing a single error leading to a goal.
