Saturday announcement
The 26-year-old, who left Fenerbahce SK last month and was part of the Turkish team that finished third at the 2002 FIFA World Cup, has agreed a contract until 2007 and will join up with his new team-mates in January. The club announced the deal after their 3-1 win against 1. FC Nürnberg in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon.
