Turkish Club Signs Former Golden Eaglet Striker


Turkish Football Federation (TFF) Lig 1 side Tuzlaspor has signed Nigerian striker, James Adeniyi, on a free transfer from Israeli Ligat ha’Al side Maccabi Petach Tikva.

The 29-year-old who scored 3 goals and provided 2 assists in 26 appearances for the club last season was among the 10 players Tuzlaspor signed to strengthen their squad for the new season.

Adeniyi was unveiled by the club on Tuesday after he passed his medicals and put pen to a deal.

The former Gabala striker is eligible to play for Nigeria, Togo and Albania, and has expressed his desire to play for Albania should the opportunity present itself.

Recall Adeniyi was called up to the Golden Eaglets team in 2013 but was dropped ahead of the team that went on tour to Qatar.
