Emre Tasdemir signs for Bursaspor !

Ankaragucu youngster Emre Tasdemir tonight signed for Bursaspor in a deal worth 500 thousand Turkish Lira. The 17 year old left back has had glowing reviews since breaking into the Turkey under 17 National team. It was only a matter of time before Tasdemir broke into the first team, but a move to Super Lig side Bursaspor was to much to turn down.

With the January transfer set to open in a couple of weeks, talks of Ankaragucu players such as Umit Kurt, Timur Ozgoz, Mert Erdogan and Gokhan Akkan moving to Super Lig sides have all been discussed, it is a bit of a surprise that the first player to go is a player who hasn't even played a single minute of first team action for the club.

The money raised from the sale will come in handy and hopefully that money will go to the first team players wages after all their hard work which see the club still in with a chance of survival.

  1. First the trickle ....... and then the deluge .... the storm is coming !!!

  2. Looks like it Jim, what we need to think of is going back to the night Chris interviewed Bayram. He admitted the players hadn't been paid in about 6 months. If there are offers from Super Lig clubs for the likes of Umit, Timur and Mert, why would they stay on unpaid ?

    If Ankaragucu are struggling financially then they cant afford to knock back offers either.

  3. p.s ive edited the post as it should have said Emre went for 500 thousand Turkish Lira and not 500 Lira.
