Turkey stars join Sociedad
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.
"Our aim is to help Real have a great season, and we aren't going to disappoint anyone," said the forward.
"We want to demonstrate that Turkish football is on the up," added Korkuy.
