The Nigerian international, who joined City from Austria Wien in a £3.5million deal last summer, was the Austrian Bundesliga’s top scorer last season, but failed to find the net on loan at Girona FC and is being relocated.
And should his loan spell at the Stade de la Licorne go well, City will be cashing in on their investment after just 12 months.
