Mikel Obi Joins Turkish League Giants, Trabzonspor on a 2 Year Deal


Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi has sealed a two year deal with Turkish League giants Trabzonspor as a free agent.

The Nigerian captain, who is currently with the country’s national team has an option to renew his contract with another one year depending on his performance at the club.

Mikel Obi spent the second half of the 2018-19 season at English Championship side Middlesbrough where he scored just one goal in 18 appearances for the club.

The former Chelsea midfielder will now join the duo of Anthony Nwakaeme and Ogenyi Onazi at the Medical Park Arena until 2021, which could be extended to 2022.

The 32-year-old will be hoping to win his second Europa League title with his new side next term as they campaign in the UEFA second tier championship when the 2019-20 season kicksoff.
