The Punch - - SPORTS - Toni Ufoh

Turkish club, Galatasara­y, have com­pleted the sign­ing of nige­rian winger jesse Sekidika from Eskise­hir­spor, as revealed by the of­fi­cial web­site of the Turkish Su­per Lig cham­pi­ons on Thurs­day.

The for­mer youth player of A. D. Oeiras, who joined the Por­tuguese club in 2014, had tri­als with Stoke City and Manch­ester City.

How­ever, due to the strin­gent re­quire­ment of a Bri­tish work per­mit and not hav­ing a Euro­pean Pass­port, Jesse could not be of­fered a con­tract at both English clubs.

The Port Har­court-born star will earn €125,000 and he’s also en­ti­tled to €250 in the four sea­sons start­ing from 2020/21.

“I came to a very big club. I am very happy. I will use this great op­por­tu­nity. Galatasara­y was a place I al­ways wanted,” the exfly­ing Ea­gles in­vi­tee en­thused.

Galatasara­y pres­i­dent Mustafa Cen­giz added, “jesse is a foot­baller who is in line with our strate­gic and re­ju­ve­nated pol­icy.

“We be­lieve that he will al­ways take part in the strug­gle to carry the flag of Galatasara­y to the top in the hon­est race as a sol­dier and a team player.”

jesse has played in the Por­tuguese and Ser­bian leagues in his ca­reer re­spec­tively.
