Caleb Ekuban back at pre-season training in Turkey, although Leeds United still haven’t confirmed exit

The Ghanaian striker joined Leeds United in the summer of 2017 from Chievo Verona and appears to have left permanently.

Caleb Ekuban is back in pre-season training after his exploits with Ghana at the African Cup of Nations this summer. However, he is not at Leeds United. 

Ekuban is, of course, training with Turkish side Trabzonspor, as reported by GhanaWeb.

The 25-year-old spent last season with the Black Sea Storm and helped them to a fourth-place finish in the Turkish Super Lig. 

That, according to reports, led Trabzonspor to conclude a permanent deal for the player. As reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post at the start of June, the Ghanaian was set to join Trabzonspor on a permanent move for a seven-figure fee. 

 

That report suggested Leeds United would soon confirm an exit. However, that has not proven to be the case. So far, the club have failed to confirm that Ekuban has left the club on a permanent basis.

Their most recent press release regards his initial loan move to Turkey from August last year. 

Turkish paper Sabah reported in May that a permanent deal had been agreed between the two clubs for a fee in the region of €1 million (£880,000). 

It certainly seems that is the case, with Ekuban now joining back up with his team-mates at Trabzonspor training. 

However, it appears Leeds United have completely forgotten about the 2017 recruit from Chievo. Considering his one goal in 20 Championship appearances, they can perhaps be forgiven.
