Dayo Ojo for Galatasaray trials

Sunshine Stars forward, Dayo Ojo, has arrived Turkish first division side, Galatasaray Spor Kulübü, for trials.

SuperSport.com learnt that Ojo will spend one week with the Istanbul-based side, fondly called Gala in Europe.

"I arrived on Tuesday and hope to convince the crew here," he told SuperSport.com.

Ojo started his development at Rising Stars before moving to neighbours, Sunshine Stars.

When asked about Wednesday's derby in the Nigeria Premier League, Ojo replied: "It's a match I would have loved to play since both teams are meeting for the first time in the history of the NPL."

The Sunshine Stars forward is blessed with skills, pace and power.

Lobi Stars' boss, Dominic Iorfa is the first Nigerian to play for Gala after moving from QPR.

Gala won the defunct UEFA Cup (now Europa League) in 1999-2000 and the UEFA Super Cup in 2000.
