Former Aston Villa midfielder Aaron Tshibola has completed a move to Turkey with Gençlerbirliği SK after his exit from Kilmarnock.

The midfielder made 78 appearances over two spells at Kilmarnock but left at the end of last season after the Rugby Park club’s relegation to the cinch Championship. This is Tshibola’s seventh club following a £5 million switch to Aston Villa in 2016.

He made a handful of appearances for Aston Villa before a mix of transfers abroad and in the UK with Nottingham Forest, MK Dons, Waasland Beveren, Aves and Kilmarnock. Tshibola moves to Turkey on a two-year deal, Gençlerbirliği SK currently playing in the second tier of Turkish football.

A statement on the former Aston Villa and Kilmarnock player’s role reads: “Aaron Tshibola, who answered the questions the press asked himself, expressed that he could play all over the midfield, but felt more comfortable in positions number 6-8 and thought he could lead the game better.”
