SIASIA BACKS EHIOSUN'S TURKEY MOVE
Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia has tipped Ekhigo Ehiosun to make a success of his switch to Turkish side Samsunspor.
'I know Ehis is a good player, level headed and always ready to work. If he continues to work hard with his new club and listens to his coach, the sky would be his limit. I see him making the headlines in Turkey very soon,' Siasia said.
'Ehis has made himself and the Nigerian Premier League proud by joining a Turkish top division club Samsunspor. This is a rare opportunity for the boy to prove himself in Europe.
' I think Ehis will now rate among the very few who team up with a top club in Europe right from the home front (Nigeria Premier League), which is a very good advertisement for our league that good players could still be sought after here in Nigeria.'
The year-long loan deal was brokered by the player's manager Emmanuel Omijeh of Rudder Sports Management, who accompanied Ehiosun to Turkey to finalise the transfer.
