Former Nigeria captain and Trabzonspor midfielder, John Mikel is expected to undergo a late fitness ahead of this weekend’s Turkish Super Lig against Gaziantep FK.
The former Chelsea player was unable to continue Monday’s training after suffering a muscle injury.
The club has been monitoring the player’s situation to know if he would have been fit for the clash.
Since arriving in Turkey in the summer, Mikel has featured in six league matches for the Turkish side.
Trabzonspor occupies the second position in the table with 12 points from seven games.
