According to Ozel Haber, Mehmet Yiginer, Atilla Suslu and Metin Aykuz have flown to Istanbul for meetings with the Turkish FA in order to lift the transfer ban. Sources close to the club believe 90% of the work has been done to remove the ban and are hopeful that within the next week the job will be complete.
Mehmet Yiginer has commented yesterday saying " We are hopeful of lifting the transfer ban by the end of the month and will sign 6-7 experienced players to help the team." The club are also believed to have agreed a deal with a foreign striker who will come if the ban is removed.
More good news as Mert Erdogan, Mehmet Tasci, Timur Ozgoz and Hasan Ayaroglu were all paid outstanding payments. Hasan is believed to be in talks with Russian giants Rubin Kazan, the youngster has impressed playing for the Turkish U17 National side. The management team have paid the latest instalment owed to Roman Bednar.
Hopefully as Jim arrives back in Bonnie Scotland the ban will be lifted and he can pick up his optimism pills :-)
