When will Kelechi Nwakali start fulfilling his potentials? 

It is reported that Spanish second division side Huesca only plan is to send Nigeria U-23 midfielder Kelechi Nwakali on loan for him to get sufficient game time before they will register him for the season.

Afrofooty understands that the club wants to focus on building cohesion with their current squad before embedding Nwakali into the set up as the 21 year old playmaker hasn't played any competitive club football for many months. Within that time Nwakali, has only played four games for Nigeria U23 who were eventually knocked out of the race to be at the 2020 Olympics.

Administrative issues ‎were also cited as part of why he hasn’t made his debut since joining the team on a free transfer from Arsenal in the summer. Aside making his debut, he hasn’t even taken part in any of the training session of the team.

Ultimately, Huesca are sticking with their plans to loan Nwakali to a 3rd division team to gain match fitness while they concentrate on securing promotion to the Spanish top flight with the players who helped them to 4th position on the second division table last season.

Reports that aren't verified have it that Nwakali's representatives are not overly pleased with this arrangements (perhaps because in their eyes, he is too big a player to be playing division 3 football).

Whatever the case may be, Nwakali needs to start playing football again so his huge talents do not go to waste.
