Trabzonspor ready to slap big asking price on Ghanaian striker Caleb Ekuban

Published on: 02 April 2019

Trabzonspor are prepared to trigger the purchase option in their loan deal for Leeds United’s Caleb Ekuban and will then slap a big asking price on him if interested clubs come calling.

Leeds loaned out the striker to the Turkish outfit last year and the 21-year-old has scored seven goals in all competitions for the club this season.

Trabzonspor have been left satisfied with the 25-year-old’s performances and are now planning the way forward for the player at the club.

They secured a €1m purchase option on the player when they signed him on loan from Leeds last summer and according to Turkish daily Sabah, the club are preparing to trigger the option.

The Turkish side are ready to sign the player on a permanent deal and have until 31st May to trigger the option to sign Ekuban from Leeds.

But his future at the club will still be uncertain as Trabzonspor are claimed to be prepared to cash in on him in the summer.

They are expected to slap a price tag of €10m on Ekuban, which could help them to turn a large profit on a player whom they signed for just a €200,000 loan fee.

Ekuban has already caught the eye with his performances in Turkish football and bids could arrive for him in the summer.
