Trabzonspor leading race to sign John Mensah

Published on: 03 July 2012

Turkish side Trabzonspor are hoping to seal a move for Ghana captain John Mensah who has been released by French Ligue 1 giants Olympique Lyon.

Lyon have confirmed the 29-year-old is leaving the Municipal de Gerland.

A host of European clubs have expressed interest in signing the former Chievo Verona defender but it is the Turks who appear to be leading the race.

Trabzonspor manager ?enol Güne? is an admirer of the towering physical presence of Mensah and is convinced acquiring the centre-back will fortify his defence for the upcoming season.

Mensah made a total of 12 appearances for Lyon.

    His agent should help him get a contract at UAE or China to earn his retirement millions. Turkey? how much are they going to pay you Capito? Please look for oil-rich Arab nation. Wishing you all the best in life.
