Ghana and Panathinaikos ace Michael Essien has agreed terms with Turkish Super Lig side Antalyaspor in a shock move this January window, GHANAsoccernet.com sources in the European country claim.
The report is gaining ground in Turkey even though the powerful former Chelsea star has contract with his current club in the Greek top-flight.
According to GHANASoccernet.com sources, the move is being engineered by Samuel Eto’o who has been installed player-manager.
