Ghana defender Jerry Akaminko has completed a one-year deal with Turkish second-tier side Istanbulspor AS.

The 30-year-old parted ways with Eskisehispor in July following the club's unwillingness to pay his accrued salaries and bonuses, bringing his six-year stay to an end.

"Ghana defender Jerry Akaminko has joined us for the rest of the season and we're happy to engage his services," a club statement read.

"Akaminko has been in Turkey for several years and has played in the Super League with several clubs. We hope his qualities will be helpful as we aim at winning qualification to the top-flight next season," the statement added.

Last season, Akaminko made 31 league appearances for Eskisehispor, starting all the games as the club escaped relegation on final day.

He boasts of 12 caps and one goal with Ghana since making his debut in 2012.
