Leeds loanee Caleb Ekuban has played just 24 minutes for Trabzonspor

Ekuban scored on his Trabzonspor debut against defending champions Galatasaray.

Leeds United have improved significantly under Marcelo Bielsa and have benefitted from his squad summer activity – which included an exit for Caleb Ekuban.

The Peacocks may have issues in their forward ranks at the moment, with Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford injured, but that will not change the assessment on Ekuban.

The 24-year-old scored just once in 20 league appearances for Leeds before earning a chance of redemption at Trabzonspor, who moved to bring the Italian-born forward to the club on a season-long loan deal.

Ekuban hit the ground running by scoring off the bench on his debut in a surprising 4-1 victory over defending champions Galatasaray but has struggled for opportunities since, making a further two appearances off the bench.

In total, Ekuban has played just 24 minutes of action for the Turkish side during his loan spell as he struggles to oust Hugo Rodallega and Burak Yilmaz from the starting line-up.

Despite the lack of chances, Turkish-Football states Trabzonspor are still happy with the player and are just allowing him time to settle into the Eastern European style of football – so it is not all doom and gloom for the forward.
