Nigeria international defender William Troost-Ekong is set to make a transfer move from KAA Gent to Turkish Super Lig side Bursaspor.

In recent days there has been speculation over the future of the centre half but supersport.com has now been informed by Troost-Ekong's representative Tony Harris that a deal has been reached between Gent and Bursaspor.

The former FC Groningen and Tottenham man will now proceed to Turkey for a medical and then officially sign a three-year deal with the Green Crocodiles.

"Ekong will be leaving Gent. He will be going to Bursaspor in Turkey after a deal was agreed between the two clubs in the last few minutes," Harris told supersport.com.

It is understood that it is a multi-million Euro deal that will see the Nigerian defender team up with former Cameroon manager Paul Le Guen, who has managed a handful of top European big hitters like Paris Saint Germain.

Supersport.com further gathered that Troost-Ekong had a discussion with the Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr about the possibility of moving to Turkey before finally deciding to join Bursaspor.
