Joseph Attamah has become a Fatih Karagumruk player after he joined the TFF 1. Lig outfit on loan from parent club Istanbul Basaksehir.

The 25-year-old Ghanaian was previously on loan at Rizespor, but he had his contract terminated by mutual consent.

"Our club has mutually agreed with Joseph Attamah, who we acquired at the start of the season, to terminate his contract," read a statement on the Rizespor website.

"We thank him for his services to our club and wish him success in his next football career."

Unable to stay at his parent club in the Super Lig, his only available option was to go one tier down in the Turkish football league system.

Seen as a big coup for them, Fatih Karagumruk thanked Istanbul Basaksehir for the success of the transfer.

"We would like to thank Basaksehir FK President Mr Goksel Gumusdag and Caykur Rizespor President Mr Hasan Kartal for their support in the transfer process," read a statement on the Fatih Karagumruk Twitter handle.

Fatih Karagumruk are currently in 12th position in the TFF 1. Lig.

Attamah played 14 times for Rizespor in the Super Lig, providing one assist and collecting three yellow cards. 

He also featured for parent club Istanbul Basaksehir in the second leg of the Champions League qualifiers against Olympiacos earlier in the season.
