Nigerian-Dutch wingback, Tyrone Ebuehi, won’t be making a return to Dutch outfit Twente with Benfica rejecting a successive season long loan.
He joined Twente during the previous campaign after failing to seal a spot in Benfica and he had a decent season with the Red and Whites.
The Super Eagles right back will be returning to the Portuguese giants after both clubs couldn’t agree to another loan deal.
Since joining Benfica in 2018, he hasn’t featured in a competitive game for the Primera Liga side.
The 24 year old joined the Estadio da Luz outfit after his phenomenal performances for Nigeria at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia from ADO Den Haag.
The Netherlands born ruptured his cruciate knee ligaments in July 2018 and prevented him from playing a competitive game for the Portuguese Eagles.
He couldn’t stake a claim on first team football following his return from injury and immediately was sent out on loan to Twente.
The return to the Dutch top-flight gave him a glimmer of hope as it turned out to be a good move.
Ebuehi was involved in 33 league games for Twente last season with him registering one goal and an assist to his name.
Twenty however do not have the financial capacity to keep him on a permanent basis and have seen their loan deal turned down by Benfica. (info culled from Tijmen Van Wissing, pier Twente fans)
Bij #FCTwente rekenen ze dus op de snelle komst van Ugalde. “Dat ziet er heel goed uit”, aldus Streuer. “Met de rechtsback, de #10, spits (tweede spits duurt wel iets langer) en een buitenspeler zijn we ook goed bezig.” Lijkt er nu meer en meer op dat Ebuehi elders gaat spelen.

With the loan contract now expired, Tyrone could be set to battle for a spot in Benfica’s first team.
