Troost-Ekong tempted to consider Saudi Arabia move

Posted : 05 March 2024

Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong is considering a potential departure from Greek club PAOK Thessaloniki at the end of the current season if an appealing offer comes his way. The Dutch-Nigerian joined PAOK last summer for €1 million after leaving Watford, featuring in several matches for the club before representing Nigeria in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

During the AFCON, Troost-Ekong showcased his skills, becoming the highest-scoring defender in the tournament with three goals in six matches. Despite Nigeria losing in the final, he was named the Player of the Tournament and earned a spot in the Team of the Tournament. The standout performances increased interest from undisclosed Saudi Arabian top-flight clubs.

Currently content at PAOK, where the team leads the Greek Super League 1 after matchday 26, Troost-Ekong expressed his satisfaction with the club. However, he acknowledged that a tempting offer might prompt a move in the summer. At 30 years old, he believes considering all options is crucial, emphasizing the unpredictable nature of football.

Troost-Ekong's football journey has taken him through various countries, including the Netherlands, England, Belgium, Italy, and Turkey. With 71 international caps for Nigeria, his experience and skills make him an attractive prospect for potential suitors in the upcoming transfer window.
