Leeds United striker scored on his Trabzonspor debut in the shock 4-1 victory over reigning Super Lig champions Galatasaray.
The loanee forward looked certain to break into the team after coming off the bench and finding the back of the net.
Ekuban has however, struggled for playing time since the Lions clash.
Since making his debut on September 1 he has played just 20 minutes of football, coming on as a substitute twice.
A source close to Trabzonspor revealed to Turkish-Football that the manager and coaching staff are happy with Ekuban but that he needs time to settle.
The player is reportedly in high spirits and has bonded well with his new teammates.
The club are confident the Ghana international’s time will come as the season progresses.
Part of the problem is that Hugo Rodallega and Burak Yilmaz have been in good form.
Ekuban is competing with both forwards for a place in the starting lineup.
Trabzonspor beat Turkish Cup and Super Cup champions Akhisar on Sunday but Ekuban was an unused substitute.
The Black Sea based outfit are currently 5thth in the league on 13 points after eight games.
