Abdullahi Set To Join Troost-Ekong, Agu At Bursaspor

By Adeboye Amosu‎: Nigerian defender, Shehu Abdullahi, is close to complete a move from Cypriot club Anorthosis Famagusta to Bursaspor of Turkey, reports Completesportsnigeria. com (CSN ).

According to a report in Turkish online news outlet, bursahakimiyet.com.tr, Bursaspor representatives met with some Anorthosis representatives on Thursday and agreed in principle for the transfer of the player to the former before the the end of the current transfer window.

Abdullahi’s possible arrival will increase the number of Nigerians at the Green and White to three, with the duo of William Troost-Ekong and Mikel Agu already key members of the team.

Final negotiation, according to the report, will hold today, with Abdullahi expected to sign a two-and-half year contract depending on the outcome of the meeting.

The 24-year-old joined Anothosis in 2016 from Portuguese club Uniao da Madeira.

The former Kano Pillars player has made 18 league appearances for Anorthosis this season.

He is a strong contender for a place in Nigeria’s squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

    The more Super Eagles in the same club the better for Nigeria. I hope his transfer works out

    I am worried about having three of our national team players in the same club. It may be good for cohesion and understanding but no club will be happy to release three players at the same time, especially if they are important players and if it is not during an international break. However, I rejoice with him on his movement to the club.
