Turkish Club Caykur Rizespor Chase Ujah

Turkish outfit, Caykur Rizespor, are interested in signing Nigerian forward, Anthony Ujah from German club, FSV Mainz, reports Completesports.com.

Ujah, 28, has struggled for regular playing time at Mainz this season and has played second fiddle behind summer arrival, Jean-Philippe Mateta.

He has featured in 11 Bundesliga games and scored twice for the Sandro Schwarz’s side.

The former Lillestrom of Norway star has started only one league game with 10 substitute appearance for Mainz this term.

According to a report in Turkish online news outlet, fanatik.com.tr, Caykur Rizespor are looking to add the striker to their squad before the end of the current winter transfer window.

Ujah, who previously featured for Mainz from 2011 to 2013 rejoined the club from Chinese Super League outfit, Liaoning Kaixin last season.

Caykur Rizespor recently acquired the services of Nigerian defender, Chidozie Awaziem on a six-month loan deal from Portuguese giants, FC Porto.

  • Rizespor if they pull this off will have four Nigerians on their Roster:

    Aminu Umar, Awaziem, Okechukwu and Ujah.
    This will probably be the second highest number of Nigerians in one team. I know Trencin in Slovakia in 2016/17 season had five previously Sam Kalu, Kinglsey Madu, Rabiu Ibrahim, Aliko Bala and Christopher Udeh.
