Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
As we heard from Bellshill Kanka Nadeem a day or two ago, Guven Varol has signed for Ankaragucu.
It was in The Hurriyet this morning so we must assume that it's a done deal.
He began his career with semi-pro Clubs, Anadolu Hisari, Pendikspor and Beykozspor before turning pro with Sakaryaspor and Denizlispor.
He is now coming from Manisaspor where he was Club Captain and generally operated on the left wing.
We will soon see if he can settle into the team and add some bite up front. With the sad departure of Vassell this will be much needed. Added to the fact that the situation surrounding the future of Vitek and Geremi is still unclear.
As a matter of interest, Kahe of Gencler is off to Manisa. No doubt a case of 'services no longer required' with the arrival of Billy Mehmet.
To answer Ata's question about Billy Boy, there is no doubt in my mind that he will be referred to as Mehmet by the TV and Press, but I'm sure the fans will call him Billy if he gets off to a good start with them. As Andrew said in a previous post, he was a fans favourite at St Mirren so there is no reason to doubt that he will be a favourite here too.
Watch this space for more comings and goings from Ankara !
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
