Lille offer €3.5m for Ekong ahead of new season

Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong could be heading for French Ligue club, Lille if the terms are favourable.

According to reports, Lille are ready to pay €3.5m to Turkish side Buraspor for Ekong who was at the heart of the Eagles defence before crashing out of the FIFA World Cup in Russia.

It has been gathered that discussions between the two clubs have reached an advanced stage for the player who moved to Turkey from Belgium side Gent last season.

Lille who are reorganising for the new season after escaping relegation last season see Ekong as a player who can help strengthen their defence.

Reports further suggest that the player who made 27 appearances for Bursaspor with two goals to his name appears keen on the move after complaining of late payment of his wages.
