Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has joined Turkish side, Bursaspor from Italian Serie A club Udinese on a one-year loan deal.

The midfielder has finally moved from Udinese after spending seven years with the Italian giants and becoming an integral part of the team.

There were speculations for the past two season that the 27-year-old would move away from Italy to the English Premiership but this was not to be with the sealing of the deal at Turkey.

The move gives the midfielder an opportunity to ply his trade outside Italy and also experience a different league as part of efforts to rejuvenate his career.

Agyemang Badu is gradually losing his place in the national team as the first choice midfielder and would hope that the move will give him a starting role in Kwesi Appiah's team.

Badu has 72 caps for his country with 11 goals to his credit and was part of the team that came fourth in the last Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon. /GhanaNews
