Leeds United loanee Caleb Ekuban has spoken to the Turkish media about his call up to the Ghana national team and he’s suggested his move to Trabzonspor has helped his international ambitions.
The 24 year old is currently on loan with the Super Lig side, a move which could be made permanent in the summer.
Fotomac have reported on comments the Leeds United owned player has made about not getting a call up whilst playing in England: “I’ve also played in England but didn’t got the nod for the national team. For that reason, once again I understand what a big club Trabzonspor is.”
It’s been well documented the Turkish side can sign the player outright for a transfer fee in the region of €1m, with suggestions in recent weeks this could happen.
After a slow start in Turkey, the Leeds United player has scored some vital goals for Trabzonspor, making his permanent move more likely. This is in totally contrast to his debut season at Elland Road when he struggled for goals and games.
The player is now in line to make his debut for his country when Ghana take on Kenya at the end of the month.
Ekuban almost certainly didn’t mean any disrespect to Leeds, but the media close to Trabzonspor will continually inform him what a big club they think it is.
