Ankaragucu sign African duo!
Ankaragucu last night completed the signings of Lance Kehinde from Elazigapor and Mbamba Kibong from Konyaspor. Both players have agreed 1 year deals and have teamed up with the squad at their training camp in Erzerum.
Kehinde is a tall powerful striker who enjoye a successful campaign with Elazigapor last season having scored 8 goals in 16 games. I watched him play a couple of times and he stood out due to his size and caused all sorts of problems for opossing defenders. The management have pulled off a major coup with the signing of the Nigerian striker who is still only 23 years old.
Mbamba is an experienced midfielder who again is very powerful and is the workhorse in the middle of the engine room. He spent 5 years at Adanaspor before moving to Konyaspor where he also had a loan spell at Boluspor.
In other news, it was announced today that Erhan Senturk, Sercan Balci and Cenk Kaplan have all left the club after failing to win new deals. The reaction from the fans is disappointing especially the news with Sercan and Cenk highly regarded.
Also moving on from the club is Emre Kara, Hursit Tasci, and Mehmet Tasci with more expecting to follow.
