This follows wake of several reports from Italy claiming the former Gent defender has agreed on a deal with Udinese, who recently lost veteran centre-back and captain Danilo to Bologna.

“I want to say a big thank you to everyone in Bursa and Bursaspor especially my teammates and staff for everything,” Troost-Ekong posted on Instagram.

“I will always have great memories of my time in Turkey as a player but also as a man.

“However, the time has come for a new step in my career. I want to wish Bursaspor a great season and I will now follow the team as a fan.

“So, of course, lastly I want to say a special thank you to Texas and all the fans who supported me and the team. I will remain one of you now.”
