Turkish Super Lig side Alanyaspor have announced the signing of Zambian international Chisamba Lungu.

The 26-year-old attacking midfielder, who was born in Kafue, Zambia, has been plying his trade in the Russian Premier League for Ural Yekaterinburg.

Known as a fearless, explosive attacking midfielder, who can change the game with a turn of pace or a dribble, Lungu spent seven years with Ural.

Alanyaspor announced the signing of the well-travelled attacker on their official website.

A club statement read: "Our club has included Chisamba Lungu, a left-wing player of Ural from Russia's Premier League teams into our colors for 3 years.

"Lungu, who previously played in Zambia's Zanaco and Georgia's Zugdidi teams, has played 40 times in Zambia's National Team."

Last season, Lungu enjoyed regular game time at Ural - hitting the back of the net three times in 29 league matches for the Russian club.

Before securing a move to Alanyaspor, Lungu had featured in five league matches for Ural in the new 2017/18 campaign.
