A Pulse source has revealed that the wedding will be in 2019.

Onyekuru and Esty have been dating for several years and have a one-year-old son together. 

According to a source, the 22-year-old and his partner are already engaged and will be tying the knot in the coming weekend in Benin City, the hometown of the girl. 

It's been a very busy summer for Onyekuru who moved into a new mansion in Lekki. He had an opening party for the new mansion just before he joined the Super Eagles ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The forward played just one game as the Super Eagles went on to win bronze medal at AFCON 2019.

Next up for him will now be his wedding which will be attended by a host of his Super Eagles teammates including John Ogu, Oghenekaro Etebo among others.

The player is looking to complete the nuptials before he travels back to Europe to resume the season with his club. 

The future of the Everton forward who spent last season on loan at Galatasaray is still unknown. 

Onyekuru joined Everton in 2018 but has spent two seasons on loan deals at Anderlecht and Galatasaray due to work permit issues. 

He won the Turkish league and cup double with Galatasaray last season.

The player is still not eligible to be given a work permit in England and he is expected to spend another season out on loan.
