The Falcons defender signed the contract on Wednesday after turning down numerous offers from different clubs across Europe, stating that her desire to play in the Champions League is what motivated her to join the Turkish club.

“I have always been desirous to play in the Champions League as such, I couldn’t resist the offer from ALG after rejecting several others across Europe.”

“I want to make history with this club and I am happy to be here. I am feeling at home already with the warm reception I got when I came in.”

“Santa Teresa was good for me but I needed a fresh start so I had to reject their offer,“ she said.

The defender played for the Super Falcons in the just concluded Women Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) in Morocco but the team crashed out of the tournament after a loss to the Host in the semi-finals and then losing to Zambia in a Third-place match.
