There’s a claim in the Turkish media that Trabzonspor will this summer activate their right of redemption for Leeds United forward Caleb Ekuban.
The 24 year old joined the Super Lig side last summer on a season long loan and it seems he could be joining them outright at the end of the current campaign.
Aksam have today reported on the latest developments with regards to the future of the Leeds United owned player and it’s claimed Trabzonspor will pay the €1m clause to sign him on a permanent deal. It’s also reported his agent stands to receive €700k for his part of the deal, a huge figure percentage-wise.
Previous reports in Turkey stated they were looking to get Leeds United to reduce the transfer fee.
In recent months Ekuban has impressed for Trabzonspor and he’s now become a regular in the starting eleven after initially being a super-sub. Subsequently he was called up for the first time by Ghana for this international break.
Recent comments from the attacker have suggested he’s content in Turkey and there have been reports the Trabzon club want to sort his future out once the season finishes.
Ekuban joined Leeds United during the 2017 summer transfer window but he failed to deliver in his debut season in England, scoring just one goal.
