Shehu Abdullahi will play his first match Today.

Nigeria international defender Shehu Abdullahi has left Cypriot side Anorthosis Famagusta for Turkey as he joins Super Lig club Bursaspor in a two-and-a-half-year deal.

The 24-year-old joined Anorthosis Famagusta from Portuguese club União da Madeira in September 2016.

Abdullahi, who has previously played in Kuwait and Portugal, joins compatriots William Troost-Ekong, Mikel Agu and Paschal Okoli at Bursaspor who are managed by former Cameroon boss Paul Le Guen.

“I thank Anorthosis Famagusta for an amazing journey and very delighted to be a Bursaspor player,” Abdullahi told BBC Sport.

In the final year of his contract in Cyprus, he was strongly linked with a move to English championship side Birmingham City but opted for top-flight football as he eyes a World Cup place.

Abdullahi played for Nigeria at the 2013 under-20 World Cup in Turkey and starred as his country finish third at the 2014 African Nations Championship (CHAN) in South Africa.
