Former Nigeria Captain, John Obi Mikel and Trabzonspor have parted ways by mutual consent, the club has announced.

Mikel only joined Black Sea Storm as a free agent on a two-year deal last summer, at the end of his brief stint in the Championship with Middlesbrough.

The thirty-two-year-old played a crucial role in helping Trabzonspor soar to the summit of the Super Lig this season with nineteen league appearances.

Last Saturday, Mikel criticised Turkish football authorities for not suspending the Super Lig season despite the spread of the coronavirus across Europe .
