Uganda Cranes forward Farouk Miya has joined Turkish Super League side Konyaspor Kulübü.

Miya who has been at Croatian side HNK Gorica joins Konyaspor on a three-year deal.

“I admired the stadium and facilities. As soon as I stepped into the club, I realized what a great community it was. I signed for three years here today,” the Uganda Cranes star said as quoted by the club website. “During this period, I want to make a great contribution to Konyaspor with my performance,” he added.
