The 25-year-old has made the temporary switch to the Croatian top division club for the 2022-23 season after spending last term on loan in Turkey with Alanyaspor.
“HNK Hajduk and Boavista FC agreed on a one-year loan of 25-year-old stopper Chidozie Awaziem with an option to purchase the contract at the end of the current season. Chidozie will wear jersey number 25 in Hajduk,” the club announced on their website.
Speaking on the move, Awaziem said: “I know that Split is a beautiful city and that the fans are very passionate and love football. I also like football, so we are very similar in that. I came to Split to give my best and to fulfill our goals.”
