Latest transfer news as Ankaragücü sign Greek winger!


Ankaragücü made a surprise announcement on their Twitter page today as they announced the signing of Greek winger Anastasios Chatzigiovanis on a free transfer. The 24 arrives from Panathanikos where he spent the last 6 seasons after coming through their youth team.

Tasos as he is known is a quick winger who reminds me of Saba Lobjanidze from the 5 minute YouTube video I saw of him today. He is said to have a lot of talent but had a disappointing campaign last season and will look to kickstart his career in the Turkish Capital after singing a 2+1 contract.

In other news, Emre Yildiz confirmed the club are close to signing another player from abroad and hope to announce it soon. Mustafa Dalci will decide whether the team extend the contracts of Aatif and Geraldo, and it’s unlikely that Owusu will return to the club.

The club have also agreed a deal with Jonathan Paintsil on the money he is owed and continue discussions with Hector Canteros. They hope to lift the transfer ban in the next couple of weeks.

  1. The lifting of the Transfer Ban must be top priority if players are going to be attracted to our Club.

    Signing Tasos seems like a good move, but the main priority must be strikers and a strong central defender with the departure of Sinan.

    Aatif's performance in the 2nd half of this season was encouraging and he was the main creator in midfield. I wouldn't be surprised if he was retained as an experienced head around hopefully younger players.

    Let's get this transfer ban lifted NOW !!!
