Eto'o swaps Antalyaspor for Konyaspor

Samuel Eto'o is set to complete a move from Antalyaspor to their Turkish Süper Lig relegation rivals Konyaspor. The 36-year-old scored 44 league goals in his two-and-a-half year spell at Antalyaspor but will be presented by Konyaspor following a signing ceremony on Wednesday.

The former Barcelona and Cameroon striker landed at Konya Airport late on Tuesday and was welcomed by a large group of fans. Eto'o's capture will boost Konyaspor's battle against relegation, with his new side second-bottom in the Süper Lig table, just one place behind Antalyaspor.
