Voted US Soccer Athlete of the Year prior to his arrival on Tyneside, a number of shaky defensive performances meant new Newcastle United manager Sam Allardyce didn't accept the option of changing Oguchi Onyewu's loan move into a permanent deal.

He joined Sheffield Wednesday in January 2014 with a contract to June 2014.

Oguchi joined Charlton Athletic in October 2014 with a contract to January 2015 that was then extended to June 2015.
