Ado Den Haag Happy To Keep Ebuehi

By David Meshioye: Dutch Eredivisie (first division) club, ADO Den Haag, has expressed their  delight and relief at retaining the services of Super Eagles defender, Tyrone Ebuehi and Nasser El Khayat despite the reported interest of other clubs to sign them during the  January transfer window, reports Completesportsnigeria.com (CSN)‎.

Omroepwest.nl reported that the officials of the Hague-based club are pleased that they have  retain their full squad after Tyronne’s proposed move to Benfica hit the rocks.

Ebuehi has impressed so well in the colours of ADO this season and was ranked among the top five right-backs plying their trades in the Dutch Eredivisie in a poll conducted last December.

Ebuehi’s attacking style of football caught the attention of Anderlecht, Olympiakos, Benfica and Norwich City, but it was Benfica that showed serious intent. The Portuguese giants failed to reach a deal with ADO to move the Super Eagles right-full back away from Holland.

Benfica are expected to return in the summer for the young Nigerian whose contract at ADO Den Haag expires at the end of the season.

The 21 year-old impressed in his cameo appearance for Nigeria  in an international friendly match against La Albiceleste of Argentina and has set his sights on making the Super Eagles squad to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

After opting to represent his fatherland, the former Netherlands youth international made his debut for the Super Eagles in a 3-0 win over Togo on June 1st 2016. Although he was part of the squad that secured the country’s sixth World Cup spot, he is yet to win any competitive match Super Eagles cap as his outings have all come in friendlies.
