French Ligue 1 OGC Nice striker Habib Bamogo will be leaving his current club to join Turkish side Konyaspor for the rest of the season, the French club announced on its website Sunday.

The 28-year-old Burkina Faso international whose contract with the Les Aiglons expires next June, was left out of Nice’s squad to face Bordeaux on Sunday in the 21st round of the French Ligue 1.

The former Marseille centre forward will be playing at the Nalçacılar alongside his compatriot defender Mahamoudou Keré.

Bamogo, who was born in France and thus eligible to play for Les Bleus, decided in 2009 to fly the colours of his parents’ homeland Burkina Faso.
