Ankaragucu youngsters set for January moves!
It never rains at Ankaragucu but it pours with bad news at the club. With President Mehmet Yiginer resigning last week there have been rumours in the media all week that the club is close to closing. Metin Aykuz who has taken over until the January congress as stated there has been no help from the TFF and instead of helping all they have done is add to the debt with all the fines for chants by the fans.
With the club desperate for money to pay off the monthly bills it looks like their star players will be subject to moves to bigger clubs in January. Gokhan Akkan has been in outstanding form this season and is subject of a move too Galatasaray.
Top scorer Umut Nayir was close to a move to Kayserispor in the summer but that didn't materialise. Sivasspor, Kayseri Erciyesspor and Rizespor will all battle out for the young strikers signature in January knowing they can take him for a knocked down price.
Also linked with a move to the Super Lig is Onur Atasayer. The young left back has replaced Emre Tasdemir this season at left back and has looked impressive.
We will need to wait and see how things work out, but the future for Ankaragucu doesn't look good and we will just be thankful that we have a team. It looks like Melih Gokcek is close to winning his battle to destroy Ankaragucu and then take the name of the club with a name change of Osmanlispor.
