The Turkish Super Lig outfit have agreed to terms with the defender, who has committed his future to the Basakhesir Fatih Terim Stadium for the next three seasons.

''I believe I will develop here as a young player. I hope together with this team it will be a very successful project.''

News24.com can reveal that Norwegian champions Molde were interested in acquiring the fullback this summer but his agent, Adam Mohammed, rejected their advances.

The 18-year-old Mohammed appeared in every single game played by the Golden Eaglets during the Fifa Under17s two year ago and skippered the Nigeria U20s in New Zealand last month.

Former Nigeria youth international Simon Zenke turned out for Istanbul Basaksehir F.K. during the 2013 - 2014 season.
