Gabriel Obertan set to join BB Erzurumspor

29-year-old former Newcastle United and Manchester United attacker Gabriel Obertan is set to join Turkish 1st division side BB Erzurumspor today after an agreement was found with his current club, Levski Sofia, according to L’Équipe.

The fee is believed to be worth under €2m and the Frenchman is due to sign for his new club on a 2.5 year contract, so long as he receives financial guarantees around payments being made regularly.

He flew to Turkey last night to finalise negotiations on site and to undergo a medical. If a deal goes through, he will join up with former Arsenal forward Gilles Sunu, who he played with at French youth international level.
