Reports from Turkey claim that Dickson Etuhu is set to complete a move to Samsunspor in the next couple of days.

The Turkish club’s president┬áKazim Yilmaz has promised a number of signings in January to help lift the second-bottom side out of the Super League relegation zone and press reports claim that Etuhu is expected in Samsun by the weekend to sign a contract with the ‘Red Lightning’.

The Nigerian international has spoken of his disappointment at a lack of first-team football under Martin Jol, hinting at a possible January exit, but delivered a string of fine performances when he replaced the injured Steve Sidwell in central midfield. The credibility of the report is undermined when they describe the Fulham midfielder as being aged 30, when in fact he is still 29.
