The 33-year-old Super Eagle joined the Turkish side as a free agent after leaving Greece side Aris Thessaloniki on August 22, 2020, and signed a two-year contract.

But after making only five appearances so far this season and not scoring a goal, Goztepe have confirmed in a statement they have terminated his contract by mutual consent.

“As a result of the negotiations with our player Brown Ideye, his contract was mutually terminated,” Goztepe said in a statement on their official club website.

“We would like to thank Ideye and wish him success in his continuing football life.”

Ideye began his career with Bayelsa United before moving to Ocean Boys and was a member of the Ocean Boys team that won the Nigerian Premier League.

On January 2008, Ideye moved to Europe to sign for Swiss Super League club Neuchatel Xamax. Before the move to Switzerland, he was on trial with Dutch side Willem II but was not signed. After three years with Xamax, Ideye left to sign for French Ligue 1 club Sochaux.

He has played for several clubs in Europe among them Dynamo Kyiv, West Bromwich Albion and Olympiacos. He also played in China for Tianjin Teda, after leaving Greece in 2017.

On the international scene, Ideye represented the Super Eagles at the 2007 U-20 World Cup in Canada, where he played five games and scored one goal, against Costa Rica.

Ideye was also called up to Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, playing in most of their games at the tournament. He scored Nigeria’s second goal in their 4-1 semi-final win over Mali and played in the 1-0 win over Burkina Faso in the final.

His last appearance for the Eagles, who are preparing to take part in the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon, came in 2016.
