Trabzon based regional newspaper 61saat reports Caleb Ekuban’s agent received more money than his parent club Leeds United when he was loaned to Trabzonspor in the summer.
According to the Turkish club’s financial reports, Trabzonspor paid €200K to Leeds United to loan Ekuban for the season, but the forward’s agent was given €225K for his part in the deal. Trabzonspor have also confirmed they are paying the Leeds United loanee €345K a season
The Ghanaian striker has struggled to get regular games since his arrival at Trabzonspor and he’s scored just one goal in eight matches for the Super Lig club.
With Trazbonspor reportedly having a €200k right of redemption for the Leeds United man there have been reports it’s unlikely at this stage they’ll activate this.
There have been recent claims the coaching staff haven’t been impressed with Ekuban and that they’ll wait until the end of the season to decide if they will purchase the player outright.
However, his future at Leeds United looks uncertain and if the Turkish club decide against a permanent deal then he’ll likely have to look elsewhere. At least there’ll be another pay-day for the agent.
