Uche Kalu has joined Turkish second tier outfi Gaziantep Büyüksehir Belediyesi Spor Kulübü on a reported two years deal for an undisclosed fee from Adanaspor.

According to SuperSport, Kalu is relishing the new challenge of playing for Gaziantep BB after spells at other Turkish clubs, Caykur Rizespor and Adanaspor.

The former Enyimba man is holding the hope of playing a major role in helping the club win promotion to the Turkish Super Lig.

“I am happy to be here and I want to do my best for the club and help take them to the premier division. This is another challenge for me, and I am going to do my best throughout the season,” said Kalu after completing his move to the Gaziantep club.

Kalu’s manager, Barrister Chike Onyeacho, said that the striker has the qualities to excel at the Turkish second tier outfit.

“Uche will give his best and he is ready to make sure that he makes his mark with the team this season.”

Last season, Kalu scored five goals in 14 league appearances for Adanaspor as they won promotion to the top-flight in Turkey.
