Brighton & Hove Albion forward Elvis Manu has joined Turkish Super League side Genclerbirligi SK on a free transfer.

Manu arrived at Albion from Feyenoord in August 2015, but struggled to secure regular game time, and joins the Turkish side on a two-year deal.

Manager Chris Hughton said, "The competition for places in our forward areas means that it has been very difficult for Elvis to play the number of matches he would have liked.

"He has worked hard during his time here, but with his game time likely to be limited again, this is the best move for him.

"It gives him the chance to play regular football in a competitive Turkish Super League, and I would like to wish him all the best for the future on behalf of everyone at the club.”


The Dutchman leaves Albion after making a total of 17 appearances, scoring three goals.

He also went out on loan to Huddersfield Town and Dutch Eredivisie side Go Ahead Eagles in the last two seasons respectively.
