The former Bendel Insurance midfield maestro had a short stint in Cyprus before moving to Turkey and January. He was a part of the Nigeria Olympic team that defeated Brazil 1-0 in a friendly game played in Rio at the start of the year.

He will team up with Super Eagles defender Godfrey Obaboana at his new team to add creativity to their midfield ahead of the start of the Turkish league.

Iyayi although comfortable as a midfielder can also play from the flanks or behind the main striker, as evident in the game he played for the Nigeria Under-23s against Brazil.
