Turkish side Yeni Malatyaspor have parted ways with Nigerian attacker Sunday Mba, four matches in the 2017/18 season.

Mba joined the Ertuğrul Sağlam coached side in July 2015 where he made over 50 appearances in the Turkish league.

An “injury” at the start of the current season saw the player largely sidelined and was still in wait for his maiden appearance for the season.

The club has since announced of releasing of his compatriot Austin Amutu with Azubuike Okechukwu the only Nigeria to survive the purge.

Mba shot to stardom when he scored the winner in the AFCON 2013 final against Burkina Faso in Johannesburg, South Africa, but he soon fell into a transfer row with Enugu Rangers that appeared to have derailed his progress.

The attacking midfielder, who first had a transfer dispute with Warri Wolves, shocked most people when he eventually opted to join French lower league club, CA Bastia in 2014.

Bastia was relegated to the third division and this freed him to move to Malatyaspor in and featured in key matches for the Turkish club as they won promotion to the top flight last season.
