He departs Antalyaspor after playing 53 games in all competitions, scoring eight goals and providing two assists.

Mukairu spent the whole of the 2020-2021 season on loan at Anderlecht and participated in eight goals (4 goals, 4 assists) in 29 appearances.

In his first words as a player of FC Copenhagen, Mukairu said to the club's official website : "I am very proud and humbled that F.C. Copenhagen have given me this opportunity, which I will do everything to seize.

"This is a big club with big ambitions that I want to work hard to fulfil with the team.

"I've seen a lot of videos from recent matches, and I'm especially looking forward to experiencing Parken and the atmosphere there."

He was linked with possible moves to AS Roma and Nottingham Forest prior to agreeing terms with FC Copenhagen.
