Ghana's Samuel Johnson has returned to Turkish side Gaziantepspor a day after his release by Fenerbahçe.

The 30-year-old signed a one-year deal with the club and is expected to play a key role in their Uefa Cup campaign next season.

"We are very pleased to see a player who was successful with us return to the club," said Gaziantepspor's director of football Asim Atmaz.

"We needed a strong and mobile player like him."

Johnson will join his new team-mates at their training camp in Germany on Friday.

The Ghanaian originally joined Gaziantepspor from Belgian club Anderlecht in 1998 but only stayed for a season before leaving for Fenerbahçe.

He subsequently made 104 league appearances for the Istanbul club but was released from his contract on Thursday, in order to make way for a new foreign player in the squad
