Mikel Agu Considers Future Beyond Bursaspor Stint


Bursaspor of Turkey midfielder, Mikel Ndubuisi Agu is considering options between extending his loan spell at the Turkish Super Lig club or staging a return to his parent team, FC Porto of Portugal.

However, while weighing his options in the summer transfer window, Agu says he will not return to Porto unless the club agree to his demands, tops of which is a guaranteed starting role next season.

Consequently, Agu is now set for crunch talks with Porto, after the completion of his loan deal at Bursaspor, where he spent the entirety of last season.

Agu was among the players who were out on loan from the club listed by coach Sergio Conceicao ‎for a look in when the team groups for pre-season training ahead of the start of next season.

However, Agu, who was dropped from Nigeria’s final World Cup squad for the World Cup, after ‎making the provisional list of 30 players, has demanded talks with the coach before committing his future to the Portuguese giants.

Since joining Porto in 2013, the 24 year old is yet to stamp his authority in the first team of the club and has made it clear that he won’t be joining another team on loan after a not too happy experience in Turkey last season with Bursaspor.

At Bursaspor he was given limited game time towards the end of the season as the club didn’t view him as a part of the future plans because of his loan dead, which has no option for them to make it permanent.

If he is to stay at Porto, he will want assurances on his first team chances as he want to cement a spot in the senior national team of Nigeria, where he is a bit part player, no thanks to the options available to coach of the team Gernot Rohr.
