Official : Mikel Joins Turkish Club Trabzonspor, To Pocket N1.22 Billion In Two SeasonsPublished: July 01, 2019
Through a statement on their official website, Turkish Super Lig outfit Trabzonspor have announced the signing of Nigeria international John Obi Mikel.
The Chelsea hero has penned a two-year contract, with the option to extend for a further year in the club's favour.
Mikel transferred to Tianjin Teda in January 2017, ending his close to 11-year association with Chelsea and returned to England to play for Middlesbrough in the January transfer window.
The defensive midfielder was in search of a new club following his release by the Riverside Stadium outfit, for whom he played 19 matches, scoring one goal on the final day of the regular season.
According to the agreement, Mikel will earn 1.5 million euros in his first season at Trabzonspor and another guaranteed €1.5m in the second year of his contract (approximately N1.22 billion in Nigerian currency over the duration of his contract).
In the event that Mikel plays 70 percent of Super League matches for at least 45 minutes in the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons, Trabzonspor will activate the option to extend his deal by a year and he'll pocket €1.5m for the 2021-22 season.
