Ankaragucu transfer news !

Its been a busy day at the club with players coming and players also leaving as Ankaragucu look to strengthen for the second half of the season. The club have announced the signings of 3 new players in the last couple of hours.

Volkan Yilmaz has signed from Elazigspor after failing to establish himself in their first team. A key player for Gaziantep BB last season, he made 2 appearances in the Super Lig this season scoring 1 goal. The 26 year old can play both in midfield and up front.

Adanaspor forward Umit Tutunci has also signed, he was a target for the club in the summer and Ankaragucu have finally landed their man. The 29 year old was once on the books of Genclerbirligi and has a good scoring record at the lower levels.

Balikesirspor midfielder Serhat Aykuz has joined the club who were short in the middle of the park. Aykuz is experienced at this level and is a welcome addition to the team.

The players above join other new signings Ataby Ciceky who is set to join on loan from Gencler unil the end of the season, Mehmet Ugurlu who signed from Polatli and former Bursa defender Mustafa Keceli. Ankaragucu have also held talks with Ali Tandogan from Mersin who is free to move due to unpaid wages.

Leaving the club is Teoman Erkan who has joined 1461 Trabzon on loan until the end of the season, while Bilal Gundogdu and Mert Erdogan have been given free transfers. Gokhan Erdogan has joined Boluspor on loan.

More news here first on the blog as soon as any more transfers happen.


  1. This is welcome news, and unsurprising given the job the new Coach has done since taking over and turning the Club's fortunes around.

    He is making his mark and he now has the responsibility of taking Ankaragucu back up into the PTT League. If he succeeds then he will be with the Club next season.

    However, let's leave it there and not discuss any other scenario !!!

  2. .... and a little bit of Gencler transfer news:


    Artem Radkov b 1985 Belarus. Stopper

    Johan Dahlin b 1986. Sweden. Goalkeeper

    Dogan Sakir Serttas b 1996. Belgium-Turkey. Midfield


    Obafemi Martins. B 1984. Nigeria. Striker.


    Jimmy Durmaz: Unconfirmed reports that agreement reached to sell him to Fener next season.

    And from Ilhan Cavcav recently: “I am sharing my experience with young chairmen and directors. If they follow my footsteps they will be successful. We got to where we are today by buying footballers cheap and selling them expensively. Other Anatolian clubs should follow this path. It's the only way they can stay on their feet.”

  3. Thanks for the update Steve, but ......... was Cavcav speaking tongue in cheek or under the affluence of incohol ??!!
