Last summer, Southampton let Paul Onuachu join Trabzonspor on a loan deal, months after signing him from KRC Genk.

The striker struggled during his short spell at Southampton but has excelled with the Turkish club, managing nine goals and three assists so far this season.

Two days ago, his good run came to an abrupt halt after he picked up an injury against İstanbul Başakşehir. On Thursday, Kuzey Anadolu stated the 29-year-old has suffered a partial fracture in his arm.

Milliyet provides an update on the Southampton owned player’s fitness. He continued playing after being hit on his arm and chest in the 34th minute but was replaced in the 68th minute.

It’s claimed the Nigeria international underwent an MRI scan yesterday and the results have shown a fracture in his arm. This will force him to spend time away from the pitch for ‘at least a month’.

Milliyet adds the Southampton man has also picked a groin injury, and this double blow is ‘bad news’ for the frontman.

Earlier claims had stated that Trabzonspor had started talks with Southampton to buy the player. It remains to be seen if the latest injuries could impact their decision to keep him.
