Kasimpasa transfer round-up: Reading defender joins ambitious Istanbul club

Kasimpasa transfer round-up: Reading defender joins on transfer deadline [divider]

Kasımpaşa had a busy January signing three players while having four departures. We take a look at those who arrived and left below:



Lasha Dvali – Reading: The Istanbul based club have signed Dvali on a loan deal until the end of the season. Kasımpaşa are reported to also have the option to sign the defender from Reading. Dvali will be playing under the command of Georgian manager Shota Arveladze which should ease the settling in process. Kasımpaşa have conceded the second highest number of goals this season (32) so Arveladze will welcome additional strength at the back.

Veysel Sarı – Galatasaray: Veysel never really got going at Galatasaray, he struggled to settle in and lost confidence soon after his arrival. Arveladze will be hoping a new setting will help bring out the best in the 26-year-old. Kasımpaşa signed Veysel on a three-year deal for a fee of €400,000.


Ferhat Kiraz – Bursaspor: Ferhat would probably still be at Bursaspor had he not burnt bridges with manger Şenol Güneş. The 26-year-old was left out of the Green Crocodiles side for much of the season but if he can stay out of trouble he will strengthen the Kasımpaşa attack.


Kerem Şeras joined Osmanlıspor on loan. The Ankara based side look destined for promotion so it would not be a surprise to see him back in the Süper Lig next season whether he stays at the self-proclaimed team of the Ottomans or returns to the actual seat of the historic Turkish dynasty in Istanbul.

Matias Fritzler had his contract terminated by mutual consent as did Kafmouba Coulibaly.

Metin Sevinç joined lower tier Centone Karagümrük on loan.
