Ucar, 26, was due to arrive in Derry on Monday, in time to go on the Eircom League club's warm weather training trip to Portugal.
Regular left-back Sean Hargan and Mark McCrystal have been out injured.

Hargan has not played in the pre-season friendlies because of injury and McCrystal, who has often deputised for Hargan, is to have a pin inserted in a metatarsal.
