Gokhan Zan has been snapped up on a free from Besiktas. Not a huge fan but would be a good replacement or partner for Servet depending on whether Servet heads to France or not.
Lots of rumours as usual and lots of the fringe players coming and going but nothing else major on the horizon.
The squad is already back in training as the season starts already on July 16th with the 3rd Qualifiying round match for the Ueropa League against Tobol from Kazakhstan and the second leg on July 23rd. Lets hope Rijkaard does his research as these kind of teams are a banana skin waiting to happen sop early into the season.

Frank Rijkaard has been appointed technical director of Turkish side Galatasaray, replacing Bulent Korkmaz.
The 46-year-old had been out of football since leaving his post as Barcelona coach at the end of the 2007/2008 season.
Rijkaard, a former Dutch international, took over at Barcelona in 2003 and won La Liga in 2005 and 2006, as well as the Champions League in 2006.
He also had a two-year spell as Holland coach from 1998-2000.
