    One thing i admire about this guy(Bright) is his sheer determination to excel and make name for himself by all means. He has never relent since his time at Wolverhampton. He couldn’t break into the main squad and he moved on loan to EFL and from there he was told his time was up at Wolve. I was worried he might be without a club till further notice, and now this. Wish you Success at AEK. Bang goals plenty there and top clubs will come for you

      Very true @chairmafemi, you could see his desire to work out a successful football career for himself. God bless this move for him.

    Bright Enobakhare needs to sit up and become disciplined so he does not end up like Isaac Success. The problem with this guy is that he lack discipline and most of his managers in England have complained of his attitude towards training. He shows up late and struts around like he owns the place. Hopefully this will change in Turkey. There is an article on thos dude by his former club convdntry. I wish him all the best.
