Real Sociedad have completed the signings of Turkish stars Tayfun Korkuy of Fenerbahce and Arif Erdem from Galatasaray.

The two players, who formed part of the Turkish squad for Euro 2000, have committed themselves to the club for three seasons with an option for an additional year.

Real Sociedad coach Javier Clemente was enthusiastic about the skills of his two new signings.

"Tayfun is a quality player. He has excellent technical ability, is aggressive in attack and has a great capacity for hard work.

"Arif has good vision, great ability, and above all great pace."

Erdem arrives at Real Sociedad with a host of honours, including six Turkish league titles, four cup winners medals and this season's UEFA Cup title.
