Report shares how much Leeds flop Caleb Ekuban will earn at Trabzonspor

Fans of Leeds United celebrate during the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road on December 26, 2018 in Leeds, England.

Caleb Ekuban scored just one Championship goal for Leeds United and he is set to leave Elland Road permanently to join Super Lig outfit Trabzonspor.

Leeds United striker Caleb Ekuban is set to sign a three-year deal with Trabzonspor as he inches closer and closer to a long-awaited Elland Road exit, according to Fotomac.

The Ghana international joined Leeds in the summer of 2017 but he struggled to make an impression in English football, scoring just one Championship goal for the club before being farmed out to Trabzonspor on a season-long loan.

 

But Ekuban’s fine form in Turkey will see him join the Super Lig outfit on a permanent basis, the Yorkshire Evening Post reporting that Trabzonspor will pay an initial £2 million fee – earning Leeds a cool £1.5 million profit.

And with the move edging closer to completion, Fotomac have now outlined the details of the deal.

It is claimed that Ekuban will sign a three-year deal and is set to earn around £12,000-a-week with his new employers.

There is a chance, however, that Trabzonspor could look to make an immediate profit on a player who has scored eight times in 33 games across the 2018/19 campaign with the former Chievo Verona striker being linked with a return to Italy recently.
