Super Eagles striker Paul Onuachu has signed a new three-year deal with Belgian side KRC Genk.

The new deal with keep Onuachu at the Club until 2024 and sources revealed that the new deal worth €5 million (N2b) a year in bonuses and salaries.

The money involved in the new deal is good, but, I think Onuachu shouldn't have agreed to prolong his stay at the Club and here are my reasons.

After scoring 33 goals for Genk last season, the big striker made it known to the club that he wanted to leave for a bigger challenge, but Genk slammed an unrealistic prize tag on him and suitors had to abandon negotiations. 

Genk's valuation made it difficult for him to join Lyon and Sevilla last season,, and it was a tactic to keep him at the Club for their purposes. 

He has just a year left on the previous, and it would have been a good idea to run down the contract, so he can leave for any team of his choice next summer, rather than penning a new deal.

Another point is, Onuachu is 27-year-old and, he should be playing in a bigger and better league, and not in a Jupiler league that falls outside the top seven leagues in Europe. 

If the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne and Victor Osimhen can leave Belgian league at tender age, then I don't see why experience player Onuachu should remain there.

Onuachu has conquered Belgian and I don't see why he should remain there, when he can test himself elsewhere and get better as a player. It is clearly lack of ambition, and he could pay dearly for it in the future.
