sportandstudy.org has been informed that Greek Super League club PAOK have set the ball rolling in their bid to sign Nigeria youth international Taiwo Awoniyi in the summer transfer window.

It is a foregone conclusion that the Liverpool striker will be farmed out on loan again next season as he is not yet qualified to be issued a work permit by the Home Office, and a loan move to the Thessaloniki based club is on the cards.

The leadership of PAOK has opened talks with the representatives of Awoniyi over a loan deal and those negotiations would have been on the verge of being concluded if not for an injury the striker suffered about two weeks ago.

Liverpool are delighted with the progress made by the former Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles star at his third loan club Royal Excel Mouscron, and intend to loan him out to a team competing in a European competition next season.

As things stand, PAOK have a good chance to sign the young Nigerian striker as they occupy the second position in the Super League standings and will be one of Greece’s representatives in the Champions League if they finish in that position.

Prior to Awoniyi’s spell on the sidelines, he had a hand in 17 goals from 31 appearances in all competitions for Royal Excel Mouscron.

Retired Nigeria international Ifeanyi Udeze had two different spells at PAOK, from 2000 – 2006 and 2007-2008.
