The start of the new season is under 2 weeks away and Ankaragucu continue their preparations both on and off the field. The club are expected to sign 3 more players with the wing positions the main priority.
Cem Turkmen signed for the club last week from Clermont in France for a fee of just over 100,000 Euros plus add ons. He was one of Kafkas Tolunay main targets as the 21 year old midfielder has represented Turkey at youth international level and worked with Tolunay in the past. He will replace Lamine Diack who has agreed a move to Nantes in France for an initial 400,000 Euro loan deal with the obligation to purchase next season for 2.1 Million Euros and a 20% sell on.
Experienced left back Alper Uludag has also signed on a free from Giresunspor, while Polish keeper Rafal Gikiewicz has signed from Augsburg in Germany.
Kafkas Tolunay last week also spoke of some of the clubs youth talents including Onur Efe, Mert Can and Sirac Astankulov and how they will get opportunities. Sirac in particular is very highly rated by Kafkas and we could finally see him handed his debut this season.
