Ogbonna said she turned down offer to renew her contract with her last club, Santa Teresa in Spain and other offers before her decision to put pen on paper for the Turkish side.
“I have always been desirous to play in the champions league as such, I couldn’t resist the offer from ALG after rejecting several others across Europe.
“I want to make history with this club and I am happy to be here. I am feeling at home already with the warm reception I got when I came in.
“Santa Teresa was good for me but I needed a fresh start so, I had to reject their offer,“he said.
The defender featured for the Super Falcons in the just concluded Women Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) in Morocco.
