Former Sheffield Wednesday striker Atdhe Nuhiu is back on the market after leaving APOEL
Atdhe Nuhiu left Sheffield Wednesday at the end of last season and headed to Cyprus, but now he’s a free agent once again.
Nuhiu, who played almost 300 games for the Owls during his time at S6, was one of several exits on the back of the 2019/20 season, but was one of only a couple that opted to stick around past the expiration of their contracts in what became an extended campaign due to COVID-19.
The Kosovo international recently retired from international football, and now it’s been confirmed that he’s left APOEL, paving the way for his next move as he looks to turn a new page in his career.
A statement, translated from the club’s official website, read. “The company APOEL FOOTBALL (PUBLIC) LTD, announces the completion of its cooperation with the football player Atdhe Nuhiu… We wish Atdhe good luck, in his professional career and best of all, in his personal life.”
In his final season at Hillsborough, Nuhiu became only the second player since the turn of the millennium to score 50+ goals for the club (the other was Marcus Tudgay), and his exit was certainly one that split opinion amongst the Wednesday fanbase.
Nuhiu played 29 games for the Cypriot outfit last season across all competitions, scoring his only goal in the UEFA Europa League back in August.
It remains to be seen where he will now end up now as the considers his options, but at 31-years-old he’ll be eager to make sure that he gets his next move right.
