Gokhan Akkan signs new 3 year contract !
Ankaragucu facebook page today confirmed that 18 year old Gokhan Akkan has signed a new 3 year contract with the club. Gokhan is highly rated and has represented Turkey at youth International level. He started the season for Ankaragucu in goal due to the injury of Bayram Olgun. Many sections of the Ankaragucu support are calling for Gokhan to be recalled into the starting line up in place of Bayram whose form has been poor of late.
Its a huge boost for Ankaragucu with the youngster set to be the clubs first choice goalkeeper for a good few years to come. Bayram is out of contract at the end of the season and is likely to have offers from Super Lig and PTT Lig clubs.
In other news today, Ankaraspor are set to return to the Super Lig next season. They were kicked out of Turkish football 3 years ago due to the Gokceks involvement in both Ankaragucu and Ankaraspor. The club who have Ahmet Gokcek listed as a professional player are set to return after the courts granted their appeal. Its unclear weather there will be 19 or 20 teams in the Turkish Super Lig next season. More to follow....
