Ideye not keen on Tianjin return, wants to remain in Europe

With his loan deal to Malaga gradually coming to an end, Super Eagles’ striker, Brown Ideye has revealed that he is keen on remaining in Europe rather than return to Chinese outfit Tianjin Teda when his loan deal expires.

Ideye joined Malaga in January after being fizzled out of Teda’s first team, and the striker told  exclusively that even though the club will want him to return, he is not sure he still wants to play in the Chinese League.

“I will like to finish my contract there before moving to another club permanently. I know Teda what me back but I don’t want to go back to China. I prefer to stay in Europe. My agent and I will push for another loan deal, but this time, a better club but that will be after the World Cup,” Ideye said.

The former West Brom attacker is reportedly a target of several clubs in Asia but he, however, ruled out a move to Qatar or any other team in the Middle East.

“Obviously, I got some offers from that region but I am not interested in playing in Qatar on any other team from that region for now. I just want to focus on doing well on the pitch and playing my way back into the national team,” Ideye concluded.
