The 21-year-old Nigeria international had been in continued negotiations with the Aquile over a new deal for a number of months, but reports over the weekend indicated a conclusion was close.

Monday evening has seen Lazio confirm that the midfielder has committed to a contract extension, although details are not listed.

“Lazio communicates that the player Ogenyi Eddy Onazi has renewed his contract with the Biancoceleste club,” Lazio’s brief statement on their website and through their Twitter account reads.

It is rumoured that Onazi’s new contract is a two-year extension to June 2018 and that his annual salary of €300,000 may be bumped up to as much as €700,000.

Speculation is also that Onazi’s new deal will include a buyout clause set at €10m.

“I give God the glory and special thanks everyone involved in sorting out this new deal,” Onazi is quoted as telling BBC Sport.

“It's important to know that your future at the club is sorted; I've always insisted that I love it here and I'm delighted to stay.

“My focus and desire is to give my best in the club colours and continue to enjoy the love and warmth of our fans.

“As a young footballer you learn every day, work tirelessly and seek to improve. I have the players, staff and the needed support to grow here.”
