Ogochukwu Onyeka has signed a five-year contract extension at FC Midtjylland, keeping him at MCH Arena until 2024.
The Nigerian has played 21 Danish Super League games this season for The Wolves, scoring four goals.
Onyeka joined the Danish club in 2015 from Lagos-based FC Ebedei.
Speaking to the club’s official website, he said: “Well, I’m very happy. Of course, FC Midtjylland is a fantastic club to be in — both as a player and a human being, and I look forward to continuing my development in the coming years.
“I’ll continue to work hard, and my goal is to become a regular starter in the club. It has been a good start for me, so it is a good starting point for the coming years’ work.”
FC Midtjylland Sports Manager Svend Graversen praised the midfielder’s attitude and commitment, admitting that the club have faith in the 21-year-old.
“We are talking about a player who, over several seasons, has developed very positively in our environment, and lately he has really improved. In the longer term, we see him as part of our central midfield, and we know he is a humble person who will work hard to achieve his goals,” Graversen said.
“We congratulate Frank Onyeka on the extension, and we are looking forward to [working with him in] the next five years.”
