Forward Olanrewaju Kayode has completed a move to newly-promoted Turkish Super Lig side Gazisehir Gaziantep FK on a season-long loan from Shakhtar Donetsk.

the newly-promoted side confirmed his arrival on a temporary basis for the whole of the 2019/2020 campaign.

Kayode joined Ukranian champions Shakhtar permanently in the summer of 2018 from Manchester City, after failing to make an appearance for the Premier League champions. 

However, he impressed while on loan at the Miners for the remainder of the 2017/18 campaign, after which the deal was made permanent. The former Austria Wien striker signed a five-year-deal at the Metalist Stadium but struggled for playing time in the last campaign on account of a spate of injuries. He featured in just 16 games for Shakhtar, scoring once.

Kayode has been capped four times for the Nigeria national team.
