Ghana defender Harrison Afful is in advanced talks over a move to Turkish club Antalyaspor, Sportscrusader.com is reliably informed.
The 29-year-old had reportedly opened talks over a move to Mersin Idmanyurdu instead but discussions between the two parties seem to have broken down.
Antalyaspor have already reached an agreement to sign fellow Ghana defender Samuel Inkoom but are looking to conclude talks to also sign Harrison Afful who is currently in Ghana on holidays.
Antalyaspor new coach Samuel Eto’o is a big fan of Afful who excelled in his debut season in the MLS with Columbus Crew.
The short-term contract of Afful at Crew has however expired, meaning he will be eligible to move on a free transfer.
Afful, who won the CAF Champions League trophy with Tunisian club Esperance insists he is desirous of renewing his expired contract at Columbus Crew.
But a humungous offer being prepared by Antalyaspor could tempt the pores of the Black Stars left-back into deciding to move to Turkey instead.
