Turkish First League club Menemenspor have completed the signing of Nigerian striker Rasheed Ibrahim Akanbi following a successful trial and issuance of an International Transfer Certificate by the Nigerian Federation.

The 20-year-old has joined Menemenspor from Future Pro Academy, a grassroots club based in Lagos, which produced former Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles skipper Ramon Azeez.

The deal taking him to Menemenspor was brokered by Dominic Egbukwu of SoccerAfrica Limited.
