EXCLUSIVE: Ghana defender John Boye agrees two-year deal with Turkish side

John Boye has been linked with a move to Turkey

Ghana defender John Boye is set to agree a bumper two-year deal with Turkish side Kayseri Erciyesspor, insiders close to the deal have told exclusively.

This comes few days Ghana's leading football news outlet exclusively revealed that the ex-Rennes centre-back was in talks with Kayseri Erciyesspor.

But the agent of the Ghana international Fabien Pivateau has agreed that the deal will be finalized after the World Cup - decision which could prove to be a masterstroke.

This opens the door for other clubs to negotiate to sign the Ghana international if he excels at the World Cup to give him the chance to play in a bigger league.

The Ghana talented centre-back has been linked with several clubs in the top leagues of Europe including Barcelona and Liverpool but nothing concrete has materialized.

Boye refused to extend his expiring contract with French side Rennes as he seeks opportunities elsewhere to boost his career and possibly his earnings.

The ambitious Turkish side Erciyesspor already have AC Milan midfielder Bakaye Traore, Senegalese defender Pape Diakhite and Portuguese forward Edinho in their fold.

The 27-year-old Ghanaian will boost their team as they seek to make a huge impact in the Turkish league.

    no john boye.just be patient and wait after the wc. im not saying the turkish league is baf but john boye doesnt deserve to play in this kind of league,no disrespect to the turks. But i guess the money offered to him is very good. Kayseri wants to rub shoulders with the likes of Galatasray,fenerbache,Besiktas and Trabzonspor.
