Nigerian international goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has secured his future with Cypriot club Omonia Nicosia after signing a contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2027, MySportDab reports.
Uzoho’s previous contract with Omonia Nicosia was set to expire next summer.
Omonia Nicosia officially confirmed the contract extension on Wednesday, heralding the continuation of their partnership with the 24-year-old goalkeeper.
Uzoho has become a key figure for the club since joining from city rivals APOEL Nicosia in 2021, amassing 43 appearances across all competitions and contributing significantly to the team’s success.
The news of the contract extension coincided with Uzoho’s return to Cyprus after representing Nigeria in a resounding 6-0 victory over Sao Tome and Principe in an AFCON qualification match.
His solid performances for both club and country have solidified his reputation as a reliable shot-stopper.
Omonia Nicosia expressed their delight at securing Uzoho’s services for the long term, acknowledging his positive impact on and off the field.
They lauded his role in the club’s recent achievements and wished him continued success while wearing the shamrock badge.
In addition to Uzoho’s contract extension, Omonia Nicosia unveiled the signing of another Nigerian talent, Akinkunmi Amoo, who joined the club from Danish side FC Copenhagen.
Amoo’s acquisition bolsters the squad’s depth and provides further options for the team.
Francis Uzoho’s commitment to Omonia Nicosia aligns with his aspirations to continue growing as a goalkeeper and contributing to the club’s objectives.
The extension reflects the mutual confidence between the player and the club as they aim to achieve their goals in domestic and continental competitions.
As the 2023/2024 season progresses, Uzoho will look to build on his previous performances, maintaining his status as a crucial figure between the posts for both Omonia Nicosia and the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
