Leeds United fans are in high spirits after their loanee striker Caleb Ekuban scored for Trabzonspor against Galatasaray on Saturday.
Ekuban made the move to Trabzonspor on a season-long loan late last month. The Black Sea based club do have the option of making the deal permanent next summer.
The 24-year-old got off to a good start with a debut goal over the weekend and a section of Leeds fans on Twitter are absolutely loving it.

Trabzonspor went on to win the game by a 4-0 scoreline. Ekuban came on in the 86th minute and his goal was scored during injury time.
Leeds were held to a 0-0 draw by Middlesborough on Friday night and are back in after the international break against their rivals Milwall on September 15.
Ekuban’s next game for Trabzonspor is up against a struggling Alanyaspor. Trabzonspor sit in seventh place after four league games meanwhile, Leeds are in pole position in the Championship.
