DONE DEAL: Mikel joins Turkish club

Another Super Eagles player has joined the long list of Nigerians heading to play their club football in Turkey. 
The latest on the long list is Super Eagles and FC Porto midfielder Mikel Agu who has completed his move from Portuguese giants FC Porto to Turkish side Bursaspor on a one-year loan deal.

Agu who put up a good show during pre-season preparations with the former European champions said he opted to make the move Turkey in order to have more playing time to aid his chances in the national team, the Super Eagles.
“ I am here to make a mark at Bursaspor.  I joined on loan on sporting terms as I want more playing time which is not guaranteed at Porto for now. I had to put my career and National team into consideration as I can only justify a call up when I am playing frequently,” Mikel Agu told
Agu further revealed that he is delighted to have to a Super Eagles team mate, William Ekong at the club as he
hope both of them will work together for the good of the club. He is expected to don the number 46 jersey for Bursaspor.
