The former Lazio midfielder was set to join the championship club during the summer transfer window but the Home office in England refused to grant him the necessary work permit.
Onazi spoke to Turkish based newspaper Fantik on Thursday saying: “I am still in talks with Harry,” Onazi revealed.
“Harry Redknapp has wanted me since he was at Tottenham. The transfer stalled but we have stayed in contact since.
“He wants players who are capable of playing Premier League football at his team. Harry wants me in his team.”
The midfield battler still has three years on his Trabzonspor contract but it remains to be seen if the player will move during the winter transfer.
