Ankaragucu set to sign 9 new players!

Reports have gathered today on social media from sources such as Yurtspor and Sporanki that Ankaragucu are set to announce that the transfer ban has been lifted tomorrow and 9 new players will arrive.

The club held a training session tonight for the players who have agreed in principle to sing for the club. It is believed that President Mehmet Yiginer will announce the removal of the transfer ban in the Haberturk newspaper tomorrow morning.

The players set to arrive are the following:

Mehmet Yildiz - 33 year old Osmanlispor striker who has an excellent goalscoring record at all levels. Big and powerful and will provide much needed firepower to the Ankaragucu attack.

Sertan Vardar - Experienced 33 year old Akhisar midfielder who has struggled to break into the first team over the last 12 months. Excellent record at lower league level and will also provide much needed experience.

Adem Saglam - 30 year old former Giresunspor centre half who has played most of his career in the lower leagues.

Ferhat Odabasi - 32 year old Goztepe goalkeeper who also has played the majority of his career in the lower leagues but has also played in the Super Lig.

Enes Kubat - Started his career with Ankaragucu before signing for Goztepe just over a year ago. The 21 year old now looks set to return to Ankaragucu. Strong and fast attacker who has potential to play at a higher level if he can get his career back on the right track.

Emrah Bozkurt - Veteran striker now 35 years old who made his name at Kayseri Erciyesspor as a fans favourite. Hasn't featured much of late but his experience will be a big help for the likes of Emir and Teoman.

Murat Sozgemez - 29 year old centre back who last played for Elazigspor. Also played in the Super Lig for the likes of Antalyaspor and Sivasspor.

Mustafa Ozturk - 28 year old former Haceteppe midfielder who is available on a free transfer.

Salih Sefercik - Towering 31 year old midfielder who last played for Gaziantep BB

Reports also today confirmed that Mehmet Yiginer and Ilhan Cavcav met yesterday and Cavcav has agreed to allow 3 Genclegrbirligi players to go on loan to Ankaragucu.

From the players mentioned above, its difficult to see many of them improving the quality of the first team. Only Enes Kubat and Mehmet Yildiz catch the eye for me with a big question mark over the rest of them.


  1. I'm witholding comments until this news is set in concrete and ratified by the TFF !!!!

    Unfortunately the management do not get any lesson from the previous mistakes. With the transfer of 9 Old player They are giving a solid message to the young players that they" You are totally inadequate and that is why we transfer at least 9 veteran players. "
    God should help AG to qualify. Volkan

  3. I agree Volkan, some of those players are too old and not good enough. We have lost Batuhan Gulcan and instead of spending money on some of these players we should have kept our young players
