Kaan Kanak signs with Eskisehirspor !

Ankaragucu were dealt another blow with the news that long serving midfielder Kaan Kanak today signed a 4 year deal with Eskisehirspor. Kaan has been with the club through the youth academy then winning promotion to the first team. Although he has never really found consistency there is no doubting his technical ability. A fantastic left foot and always dangerous at set pieces.

The news has been met with the anger of the Ankaragucu fans with Gecekondu leader Ali Imdat releasing a statement slamming the Ankaragucu board for allowing another key player leave. The fee is believed to be in the region of 200,000 TL. After loosing Bayram last week for 140,000 TL and Emre Tasdemir for 1.5Million TL the fans believe Ankaragucu are allowing their players to leave on the cheap.

In other news it is also believed that Gokhan Akkan is in talks with Gaziantepspor which would be an even bigger blow. Having lost number 1 Bayram Olgun to Manisaspor, if Gokhan left it would leave Cihan Bal and Turgut Kirveli to fight it our for the number 1 spot with both players having little experience.

There was some good news as youngster Altay Bayindir was called up to the Turkish U17 national team. The young goalkeeper has caught the eye with his performances for the youth team.

  1. I can understand the fans anger at the departure of Kaan. With him in midfield we had a player who gives 100% for 90 minutes and who can supply ammunition for the front two. With his departure, I forsee a situation where Levent is sucked into foraging back into midfield for the ball and leaving Umut up front on his own.

    Perhaps the young players coming into the midfield will prove me wrong so here's hoping they do.

    Good luck and success to Kaan at Es-Es.
