Britt Assombalonga has finally decided where his future lies following his move away from Middlesbrough.
The 28-year-old striker was told that he would be leaving the Riverside Stadium this summer after a lack of progress in coming to a solution over the player’s future with his contract coming to an end over the summer.
As a result the striker has been looking for his next challenge, something that he’s now secured with a move to Turkey.
Assombalonga has completed his switch to Turkish Premier League side Adana Demispor as he prepares for a big opportunity.
Adana Demispor have just been promoted to Turkey’s top flight and will be hoping to make a big impact at the highest level of the nation’s football pyramid.
For Assombalonga this is a long-term project after penning a three-year contract at the club which will see him stick around until the summer of 2024.

While Assombalonga’s time with Middlesbrough has ended under something of a cloud, there’s no doubt that he made a big contribution over recent years.
The striker found the net 45 times in 152 appearances for the club, a record which equates to almost one goal every three matches.
Britt Assombalonga will be very happy to have his future tied up.
The striker’s time with Middlesbrough ended on a really sour note and so it’s clear that fans won’t lose much sleep following his exit.
For the 28-year-old this represents a real opportunity to make a clean break and kickstart his career.
Adana Demispor have big plans for the season ahead and the hope will be that Assombalonga can fire them to survival this term.
