Leeds United let go of Caleb Ekuban this summer, and he has quickly made an impression at Trabzonspor.

Leeds United fans have been left shocked after Caleb Ekuban struck a Europa League hat-trick last night.

Ekuban left Leeds to join Trabzonspor on a permanent transfer in the summer, after a successful loan spell in Turkey last season.

Ekuban has wasted to time paying back the fee that Trabzonspor expended to get him off Leeds.

 

The Italian-born striker scored three times as his side beat AEK Athens in Greece.

And Leeds fans have been left stunned by what their former front-man did.

Ekuban joined Leeds in 2017, but rarely looked like a clinical finisher at Elland Road.

The 25-year-old only managed to score two goals for Leeds in 21 appearances, and often was very wasteful when given chances.

Leeds are still unlikely to feel that they made a bad decision by letting Ekuban go, as he never seemed to be a part of Marcelo Bielsa’s plans.
