Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel, will earn about 600 million naira (€1.5m) per season at his new Turkish club Trabzonspor.
The 32-year old signed a two-year deal with an option of additional 12 months, and will earn over €150,000 a week.
“Mikel got a good deal I must confess,” a source, who brokered the deal, disclosed to Sports Extra.
“€1.5m per season for his age, wealth of experience and pedigree earned him that lucrative contract at that age."
The former Chelsea midfielder will be joining compatriots Ogenyi Onazi and Anthony Nwakaeme at Trabzonspor.
The Turkish club will compete in next season’s Europa League after finishing fourth in 2018/19 season.
Mikel made 249 Premier League appearances for Chelsea in an 11-year spell, winning two league titles, three FA Cups, the UEFA Champions League and the Europa League.
