Sierra Leone striker Ibrahim Teteh Bangura has completed a move to Turkish top division side Bursaspor from former Swedish champions AIK Solna.

The 21-year-old has signed a three-year contract.

Although the fee is undisclosed, it is believed to be the highest AIK Solna have received for a player.

"I have joined Bursaspor and I'm delighted about it," Teteh Bangura told BBC Sport on Tuesday.

"I had a good time with AIK Solna and I want to thank fellow players, officials and fans of the club.

"This might be the turning point in my career; I hope to continue my scoring form in Turkey and maybe bigger European teams might come my way."

Teteh Bangura caught the eye of many clubs around Europe with his goal-scoring exploits at AIK - netting 15 goals in 17 appearances in his debut season.

The Leone Stars hitman only joined AIK Solna in January this year from a Swedish lower league team Köping FF where he scored 12 goals in 11 appearances.

Bursaspor finished third in the Turkish league last season and are competing in the Europa League.
