Ersun Yanal set to sign Trabzonspor deal

Ersun Yanal is set to be appointed as Trabzonspor manager in place of the outgoing Vahid Halilhodzic.

The Black Sea based side who agreed a €1.6 million severance deal with Halilhodzic have turned their attention towards Fenerbahce’s former manager Yanal.

Yanal is on the verge of signing a 1.5 year deal with Trabzonspor and is expected to take first team training on Wednesday.

The contract is believed to be worth in the region of €2 million.

The 52-year-old’s first game in charge (if appointed) will be against rivals Galatasaray in Istanbul.

Yanal won the Turkish Super League with Fenerbahce and has previously managed Trabzonspor from 2007-2009.
