Championship table-toppers Leeds United sent striker Caleb Ekuban out on loan to the Turkish Super Lig with Trabzonspor in the summer transfer window.
Caleb Ekuban was one of a number of players who bid farewell to Leeds United in the summer.
Just one year after arriving at Elland Road from Albanian football, the Ghana striker was heading to Turkey, joining Trabzonspor on a season-long loan deal.
And he has already scored more goals in the Super Lig than he managed in an entire season at Elland Road. Despite not starting a single one of his 12 league appearances, Ekuban has still hit the back of the net three times, and also fired home a brace in the 5-0 thrashing of Sivas Belediye Spor in the Cup recently.
Speaking to Haber61, Ekuban has admitted he would jump at the chance to sign for Trabzonspor permanently, suggesting that a return to Leeds is not exactly on the cards.
“Coming here was the best decision in my life,” Ekuban said. “The club wants to keep me. I also aim to stay.”
Ekuban proved to be one of Victor Orta’s strangest signings since the Spaniard was named the club’s director of football in 2017, scoring just once in 20 Championship games.
Now, with Kemar Roofe, Patrick Bamford and Tyler Roberts all at the disposal of Marcelo Bielsa, do not expect to see Ekuban wearing the famous white shirt again.
