Ghana defender Lumor Agbenyenu held his first training session with Turkish top-flight Goztepe on Thursday morning.

Agbenyenu, 22, joined the side from Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon.

The 22-year-old swapped Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon for Goztepe after the two clubs reached an agreement.

The left-back has penned a six-month loan deal at the Turkish Super Lig side with the Goztepe retaining the right to make the deal permanent.

It emerged late last year that Agbenyenu was close to leaving the José Alvalade Stadium after failing to churn out regular playing time.

The Ghanaian was linked with a loan move to several clubs in Europe including French club FC Amiens and PSV Eindhoven.

However, Goztepe won the race to sign the enterprising left-back and he is expected to start training immediately after passing the medical.

He has made only eight appearances in all competitions for Sporting CP since joining them from Portimonense around a transfer fee of 2.5 million euros.

Agbenyenu has capped nine times for the senior national team of Ghana.
