“Every new move comes with a different challenge, but I love to challenge myself,” Awaziem told Remsport
“The Spanish League is exciting and watched by millions back home in Nigeria, so I am ready to do my best at Leganes.”
RemSport understands there is no option to buy included in the deal, with both Porto and Awaziem seeing his long-term future at Estadio do Dragao.
Awaziem has come through the ranks at Porto and has also enjoyed loan spells at French side Nantes and most recently Turkey’s Rizespor, where he played all 16 games as the struggling club made a dramatic turnaround in the second round to finish 11th and avoid relegation.
A product of El Kanemi Warriors Academy in north-eastern Nigeria, he moved to Porto in summer 2014.
He has made 15 appearances for the first team including a Uefa Champions League debut against Galatasaray last season.
Awaziem, who has played extensively for the Porto youth side, has represented his country at Under-23 and senior level.

He has scored once in 11 appearances for the three-time African champions and is expected to play a huge part in his country’s quest for a spot at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
