Ankaragucu sign Ricardo Faty!
Ankaragucu this afternoon completed the signing of Bursaspor midfielder Ricardo Faty on a 2 year deal with the option of another 1 year. The Senegalese international becomes the clubs 3rd signing of the summer as the team prepare to leave for Erzerum today where the team will spend pre season.
Faty at 31 brings a wealth of experience having played in France with Strasbourg where he impressed enough for Italian giants Roma to sign him as a replacement for Olivier Dacourt. He played 19 games with the club before moving to Germany on loan with Leverkusen but only managed 2 games. Successful spells with Aris, Ajaccio and Standard Liege followed before signing with Bursaspor in 2015.
At 6ft 4 Faty adds physical presence in the middle of the park and experience. Faty said that he turned down offers from Europe to sign with Ankaragucu and is very excited to be part of the project.
Mehmet Yiginer was delighted to announce the signing of Faty, and also stated that the transfer ban should be sorted in the next couple of days as the last two files to close are Aydin Toscali and Hakan Kutlu who they will look to negotiate a deal with.
