John Ogu has decided to call time on his Hapoel Beer Sheva career after a five-year spell at the club.

Last week, the midfielder confirmed that he would not be renewing his contract with the Israeli champions after failing to agree terms for a new deal, while retaining hopes of getting a transfer to a major European league.

Ogu joined Beer Sheva in September 2014 and helped the side to three back-to-back Israeli Premier League titles.

He also lifted the Israeli Cup twice, as well as the Toto Cup.

“After five years here in Hapoel Beer Sheva, I have decided I won’t be continuing my career here,” Ogu wrote on Twitter.

“All I just want to say is, thank you to everyone that made it possible for me to be here. Thank you for the memories and support. And to the fans, I specially say a Big Thank you.”

Reportedly, a switch to Turkey is said to be on the cards for Ogu.
