Exclusive: Lanre Kehinde Joins Turkish Side Ümraniyespor On A Year And Half Deal


Former Golden Eaglet striker, Olanrewaju Lanre Kehinde has sealed his move to Turkish Football Federation (TFF) Second Division side Umraniyespor from South Korean League 1 club Incheon United.

Kehide, 26, put his signatures on a one and half year contract, thus becoming the second Nigerian the Magate Group had brokered a deal for within one week after former Super Eagles midfielder Raheem Lawal joined Akhisar Belediyespor of Turkey last week.

The centre forward who once featured for Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Kwara United in 2011/12 season is not new to the Turkish league having featured in the colours of Elazığspor, Ankaragücü and Denizlispor between 2017 and 2019.

A 6 foot 4 1⁄2 inches tall Kehide was a potent marksman, as he scored 25 goals in 63 appearances with the three clubs.
