Umraniyespor have officially announced the signing of 20 year old Nigerian midfielder Leventise Owuzie Azubuike on a three year deal.
His signing took place in the office of the club president after a short ceremony which had in attendance the president of the club Recep Yogurtcu and coach Ergun Keles alongside the agent of the player.
Azubuike joined the team without a single minute of professional football in any level of league football in Nigeria, as he was snapped up from local academy Bethel FC.
Umraniyespor are battling to gain promotion to the top flight league in Turkey, which will be historical as they are yet to play in the Turkish Super Lig since their formation in 1938.
Back to back promotion saw them move from the TFF Third League to the TFF First League from 2014 -2016, with their aim solely focused on reaching the top league next season.
