Collins  Set For Besiktas Move From German Side Paderborn

German Bundesliga side, SC Paderborn are considering offer from Turkish Super Lig outfit, Besiktas for Nigerian defender Jamilu Collins, Completesports.com reports.

Besiktas, according to several reports in Turkey have made a tempting offer for the highly rated left-back which Paderborn might be willing to accept at the end of the day.

A move to Besiktas will see the 24-year-old feature in the UEFA Champions League for the first time in his career.

Collins played a key role in Paderborn’s promotion to the Bundesliga last season featuring in all of the club’s 34 league games.

Collins is currently on holiday after taking part at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria’s Super Eagles.

He featured in three games at the competition with the Super Eagles securing third place.

  • I would see this as a negative move. From a top five league in the world to Turkey. Surely sticking with his present club will be a better option, and then move to a mid table club in Germany if necessary.

    Yes his club is one of the favourites to go down, but six months down the line it’ll be clear plus playing in Germany is a far bigger shop window.

    I’d rather be tries his skill against German opposition than take a step down

      It is obvious the Turkish club is willing to do anything to strengthen their defence ahead of the upcoming season, he should give his best to help the club spring surprises just as Ajax

  • O,boy you better remain in germany

    personally, bro go to besiktas and play in the champions league. if he remains with perdabon,the might relegate from the bundeliga which will not be good for a young and promising young back

  • Bro Obozuwa, I quite agree with you: a move to one of Turkish giants may not be such a bad move.

    You see, I have always been of the view that if you must leave a mainstream league to go to a Turkish club, then it must be one of Besiktas, Fenerbahce or Galatasaray.

    At least you will have top quality players as colleagues and you are almost guaranteed either Champions League or Europa League exposure with more opportunities to play against the likes of Real Madrid, Man City or AC Milan.

    Considering that Paderborn are relegating contenders in Germany, I will encourage him to seriously consider a move to one of the giant clubs in Turkey.

    Better leave a ship that has the potentials to sink and choose a team that sails in European football waters.

    • I would hedge that a mid table German team would possibly sign him if he performs well in the Bundesliga regardless of how his club does.
      My preference would be for him to see how he does in a top 5 league first. Six months to a year he can look to switch once he’s proven himself.

      But I understand the Europa League angle

  • greenturf 2 years ago

    Besiktas is a great Turkish club that guarantees opportunity of European football.
    Having said that,i would rather he remain in Germany.Not every team that gains promotion to the elite league goes down the following season.Some teams are there to stay who says paderborn can’t.
    However,should they get relegated i do not see him going down with them.Collins is a mobile and skilled left back with a sweet left foot who does his defensive duties well.
    A regular with the super eagles is a profile that should keep him up there.
    I would rather he remains at the summit of German football and make a case for himself so he could be signed by bigger teams either in Germany,England,Spain or Italy.
