Newly promoted Turkish Super Lig side Caykur Rizespor have bolstered their squad with the signing of Aminu Umar from Osmanlıspor on loan.
Last season, the attacker scored five goals in 31 league appearances for the Osmanlı Stadyumu outfit but was not enough to save them from relegation.
The Black Sea Sparrowhawk secured promotion last term after claiming the TFF First League title and on Thursday they announced the acquisition of the 23-year-old Nigerian attacker as part of their aim to have a good campaign in the new season.
“Caykur Rizespor reached an agreement with Aminu Umar from Osmanlıspor,” read a statement on club website.
“We have reached an agreement with Nigerian striker Aminu Umar, who is 23 years old as a lease for one year.
“He played in last season's Super League with team Osmanlıspor. We say to Aminu Umar that the club welcomes him, we wish him success.”
The former Samsunspor player will link up with the team’s captain and Cameroon forward Leonard Kweuke and Senegal defender Armand Traore.
Umar could make his first appearance for his new club when they clash with Al Shabab in a friendly tie on Saturday.
Rizespor kick-off their campaign in the Turkish Super Lig with a game against Kasımpasa on August 11.
