Onur Atasayer signs for Bursaspor!
As mentioned last week both Onur Atasayer and Harun Aydin have attracted the attention of Super Lig and PTT sides after a string of impressive performances for Ankaragucu. Both young players have worked their way into the first team over the last couple of years and become key players.
Unfortunately we were given the news today that Onur Atasayer has agreed a move to Bursaspor with his contract up at the end of the season. The Ankaragucu management have claimed they will use the money (which is unclear what the fee is) to lift the transfer ban and bring in 3-4 new players.
I have been a huge fan of Onur from day 1 when he broke into the first team 4 years ago as a 17 year old. As much as I'm disappointed that we are losing him, I'm delighted for him that he has won a deserved move to the Turkish Super Lig and would like to wish him all the best in his future.
That brings me onto our next point. This whole brother love affair with Bursaspor can stay between the fans, but as far as I'm concerned I have nothing positive to say about them as a club. They continue to take our best players for peanuts, while claiming every year they will send some of their reserve players to help the club and then fail to keep their promise.
In other news, Adem Saglam has left the club and joined Ofspor, Orhan Evci has signed for Haceteppe and Ahmet Yazar has signed for Dardanielspor.
Next up for Ankaragucu is an away match at Aydinspor this weekend as the second half of the season gets under way, we will have all the latest team news in the next couple of days.
