Former England striker, Darius Vassell, arrived in Turkey to discuss a transfer with Turkish club Ankaragucu.
Around 3,000 fans of Turkish side Ankaragucu turned out to welcome Vassell. The boisterous contingent went into delirious joy when Vassell finally appeared. The former City striker was mobbed by the hysterical fans who surrounded him and draped him in scarfs and flags.
“We’ve terminated the pre-negotiations with Darius Vassell,” Yilidirim said on Turkish radio ahead of Vassell’s arrival.
“We aim to secure a big signing as this year is our centenary. He [Vassell] will visit the city and our installations. Then he will make a decision.
“I hope we can include him in our squad.” Yilidirim says on the Turkish radio.
Ankaragucu should be a great place to start over. I wish Darius Vassell luck in his career and fulfil his true potential.
