John Chiedozie (born 18 April 1960 in Owerri, Nigeria) is a former professional player who played for Leyton Orient, Notts County, Tottenham Hotspur, Derby County, Chesterfield and represented Nigeria at international level on nine occasions.
Chiedozie joined Orient as an apprentice in April 1977 where he went on to make 145 appearances including 14 as sub and scoring 20 goals. In August 1981 he joined Notts County for the first time in a £600,000 transfer deal. Chiedozie featured in 111 matches including one as substitute and finding the net on 15 occasions.
Tottenham paid £375,000 for his services in August 1984. The winger showed great pace but was often the victim of over zealous defenders. In his career at the club, much of it disrupted through injury, he played in 75 matches, including 11 as sub, scoring 14 goals in all competitions.
Derby County was his next club, which he joined on a free transfer in August 1988, where he completed only two games in his time at the Baseball Ground. A second spell at Notts County began in January 1990, which resulted in just one substitute appearance, before joining Chesterfield in March 1990 where he featured in seven matches, including five as sub. Chiedozie ended his career at the Hampshire non-league side Bashley, and retired from competitive football in 1992.
