Olarewaju Kayode Shuns Amiens, Agrees Loan Move To Turkish Side Yeni Malatyaspor


Manchester City summer signing Olarewaju Kayode has turned down the chance to join French Ligue 1 side Amiens in favour of a move to Turkish side Yeni Malatyaspor.

Per the last report on Kayode by this portal, the 24 year old was putting finishing touches on a loan move to struggling French Ligue 1 side Amiens, but latest report suggest he has agreed to join Yeni Malatyaspor of Turkey.

Kayode who was linked with clubs in Turkey before talks started over a move to Amiens is looking for a new club to spend the rest of the season on loan, after struggling to impress at ‎Spanish LaLiga side Girona.

He joined Man City in the summer after impressing for Austrian side Austria Wien last season, where he scored 17 goals and was also voted the best player in Austria last season.

The Nigeria international is searching for a club where he can get regular game time in order to help him stay in the senior national team of Nigeria ahead of the World Cup in Russia.


A former junior international with Nigeria, he has struggled to establish himself as a regular in the Super Eagles, no thanks to the options available to coach Gernot Rohr in attack.
