The Spain-based duo of Leganes defender, Chidozie Awaziem and Getafe midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo ate both bound to enjoy extended loan spells in The Land Of The Armada, following reports that the country’s league body, LaLiga is considering an approval of added time on all temporary deals that were initially billed to end in May.
Awaziem is on loan at Leganes from FC Porto of Portugal and Oghenekaro has a similar deal at Getafe from Stoke City of England but, while their respective spells were meant to expire with the ongoing season, the forced break caused by coronavirus means they could end up falling short of the duration.
However, megasportsarena.com gathered that the Super Eagles’ duo would be glad to hear that they will have the opportunity of making up for lost time in the current hiatus, as LaLIga will no longer end the current campaign in May, and all clubs have received the nod to keep all existing deal into the additional time frame until the race ends late in June.
Awaziem and Etebo will bank on a report by Spanish football daily, Marca, which disclosed that LaLiga will continue beyond June 30th, as opposed to the earlier closing date in May, thereby bringing about the possibility of prolonged stay for all players on loan in the top-flight league.
The report adds that there is likely to be an amendment to several loan deals that were billed to end with the season, meaning the like of Awaziem and Etebo would ordinarily no longer be with any contracts at the Spanish clubs by the time the final round of fixtures eventually hold.
The report expatiated that each player is subject to Spanish labour laws like any worker and that their agreements should follow general rules, thereby meaning the likelihood of extended stays for Etebo, who joined Getafe from Stoke in January for the season, and Awaziem, who arrived at Leganes in a similar agreement with Porto in August last year.
