Nigeria defender Tyronne Ebuehi is set for a loan spell in the Netherlands after failing to win a regular playing spot at Portuguese Primeira Liga champions Benfica, Completesports.com reports.

Ebuehi linked up with the Eagles in 2018 but missed the entire campaign after copping a cruciate ligament injury in training.

The 24-year-old has also struggled with his fitness this season and has featured in seven games for the Benfica’s U23 side and made four appearances for the Team B.

According to a report in Portuguese online news hub, abola.pt, Benfica are looking at the possibility of sending the right-back out on loan to a club in Holland before the close of the winter transfer window.

Ebuehi spent four years at Dutch Eredivisie outfit ADO Den Haag before moving to Benfica on a free transfer in 2018 penning a five-year contract.

He made 78 league appearances for the club and scored one goal.

Ebuehi was in Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. He came on as a substitute in the second half of a 2–0 victory over Iceland.
