Brighton striker Elvis Manu has joined Turkish Superliga side Genclerbirligi SK on a free transfer.

The 23-year-old Ghanaian terminated his contract with Brighton & Hove Albion two weeks ago and has now joined the ambitious Turkish side on a two-year deal.

Albion boss Chris Haughton told the club’s official website, “The competition for places in our forward areas means that it has been very difficult for Elvis to play the number of matches he would have liked.

“He has worked hard during his time here, but with his game time likely to be limited again, this is the best move for him.

“It gives him the chance to play regular football in a competitive Turkish Super League, and I would like to wish him all the best for the future on behalf of everyone at the club.”

Manu has previously featured for Feyenoord Rotterdam, and Go Ahead Eagles.
