Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Ankaragucu finally got their man !

It was reported in The Hurriyet today that Ugur Ucar has signed for Ankaragucu from Galatasaray.

He is a 23 year old right full back who is a product of the Galatasaray Youth Team and he has represented Turkey at Under-21 Level 20 times.

He hasn't been seen as a regular for Galatasaray in recent times because he broke his right knee-cap in 2008 and it took 15 months before he could start training again. He obviously passed the Ankaragucu medical so he should be fit to go.

No doubt he has been drafted in to replace El-Yasa and hopefully he will be another cog in the wheel to shore up the defence for the coming season.

There are other players on Ankaragucu's 'shopping list' and more on that when the details are known.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim

    great news that Ucar has signed, we struggled at right back last season imo, We need a left back aswell though unless Broggi's loan deal is made permanent.

    Celine - I just pray to god that Vittek deal is defo complete and that lille dont pull out of it after his performances at the world cup

    Yeah the buzzards will be circling for Vittek me thinks.

  4. In The Hurriyet this morning (Saturday) there was a spread congratulating Vittek on his performances in South Africa, and a statement that the management was looking forward to welcoming him back into the fold here !

    Time will tell if the management has been taking Eski's optimism pills, or if they are right (for a change !!).
