The agent of Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong says the defender will have his medicals with Turkish side Bursaspor after a fee was agreed for his transfer from Belgium side Gent.
Tonny Harris told George Akapyen of Supersports.com that a fee for the transfer of Ekong was agreed yesterday between Gent and Bursaspor and the defender will sign a three year deal with the Turkish outfit as first reported by this portal.
“Ekong will be leaving Gent. He will be going to Bursaspor in Turkey after a deal was agreed between the two clubs in the last few minutes,” Harris told supersport.com.
Troost-Ekong had a chat with the head coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr on the the possibility of moving to the Turkish outfit before his decision to join the team.
It was gathered that although Rohr would have preferred him to move to a more competitive league in Europe, the manager backed his move to Turkey as he wasn’t having regular run of games at Gent.
