Turkish giants Bursaspor have completed the signing of Nigerian midfielder Mikel Agu from Portuguese side, FC Porto.

The Super Lig outfit signs Agu on a season-long loan deal from Portuguese giants FC Porto as the player makes his third loan move since joining Porto's youth set up in 2012.

Agu joins Nigerian compatriot William Troost-Ekong at the club and has expressed delight in the move.

"I'm delighted to join Bursaspor, I came here for business and I can't wait to show everyone what I can do," Agu told the club's official website.


"I spoke with some players who had previously played here in Porto and received positive feedback. I also found out during my own research that this is a great club."

The 24-year-old only made two appearances for Porto and spent the 2016/17 Portuguese season on loan at Vitória Setúbal, making 34 appearances last season.

His performance in Portugal caught the eye of Nigerian national team coach, Gernot Rohr and he was handed his Super Eagles debut in a 3-0 friendly win over Togo in June.
