Arici forwarded the links to Atasehir team manager Murat Ulku, who impressed by what he saw, sent her an invitation.

"I've seen the football here and I know that it is nothing to be [worried] about," she continued.

The striker has arrived in Istanbul for a medical with a view to signing for Atasehir Belediyespor Women's FC.

Another Tanzanian international Eto Mlenzi is awaiting clearance from her local club, so she too can join Atasehir.

"We don't speak the same language, but we are already friends," she told the BBC.

"I believe in myself, and I think I can really help this team," Rashid said.

Atasehir Beladiyespor currently lead the league and Rashid hopes to sign an eighteen-month contract with the club.

Rashid, who is ineligible to play a competitive game until she officially registers with the Turkish Football Federation (TFF), has begun training with the team.

The striker was noticed on the video-sharing website Youtube by Fifa licensed agent Ahmet Goksel Arici, himself a former Turkish national team goalkeeper.

Rashid, who is a member of Tanzania's women's national squad the Twiga Stars, said she was impressed by the welcome she got.
