Istanbul Basaksehir have reached an agreement with RKC Waalwijk

They managed to reach an agreement, particularly with regard to the financial aspect.

RKC Waalwijk also wished good luck to its now ex-defender in his new experience. “Player development is an important pillar in the vision of our club. Ahmed has played 62 games for RKC over the past two seasons. He rose through the ranks to the rank of Algerian international. He is now making a nice transfer to a top 4 club in Turkey. A transfer that reflects our development of players to sell them for the big European clubs. Said the general manager of the Dutch club, Frank Van Mosselveld.

It should be noted that Ahmed Touba is the third player of the national team who has finally decided on his future destination. Abdelkader Bedrane and Akim Zedadka have joined Damac (Saudi Arabia) and LOSC Lille (France) respectively.
