'It will not be a big deal' - Oparanozie opens door to Nigerian League return after Guingamp exit

The Nigeria international striker could be the next high-profile star for the domestic league, with his departure from the French top-flight club
Desire Oparanozie has revealed it 'will not be a big deal' for her to join a Nigeria Women's Premier League club after she parted ways with French outfit Guingamp.The abrupt end of the Division 1 Feminine 2019-20 season in France due to the coronavirus pandemic brought an end to her six-year-long journey with the club.
The 26-year-old had joined the French top-flight club from Turkish women's side Ata┼čehir Belediyespor in 2014 and scored 45 goals in 106 appearances during her sojourn.
Having confirmed her exit this week, the striker, who is now a free agent, admits she is open to the possibility of moving on to join a Nigerian club.
“My contract with my French club ends in June, so I decided not to renew it because I needed to explore other avenues," Oparanozie was quoted by the Guardian.
"Some clubs want me to join them, but I have not taken any decision. If there is a need to come back to Nigeria to play in the women’s league, I will play.
