Mikel joins Turkish club

Nigeria international midfielder, Mikel Agu has joined Turkish Super Lig club Bursaspor on a season-long loan from Portuguese giants FC Porto.

The 24-year-old, who has only made two appearances for Porto, spent the 2016/17 season on loan at Portuguese side Vitória Setúbal where he made 34 appearances last season.

Agu joins Nigerian compatriot, William Troost-Ekong at the club.

It is Agu’s third loan move since joining FC Porto’s youth set up in 2012.

“I’m delighted to join Bursaspor, I came here for business and I can’t wait to show everyone what I can do,” Agu told the club’s official website.

He said, “I spoke with some players who had previously played here in Porto and received positive feedback. I also found out during my own research that this is a great club.”

His performance in Portugal caught the eye of Nigeria coach ,Gernot Rohr and he was handed his Super Eagles debut in a 3-0 friendly win over Togo in June.
