Hakan Yakin is a very good player. He isn't a classic #10, but I think he will fit our system prefectly and plus he is an expert in dead-ball situations oh and he is Turkish so he doesn't take up[ a foriegner spot. He will sign teh official deal tomorrow so we'll see how long teh contract will be and yes it can't be a loan as Stuttgart released him.
I agree with you guys, I also think he's a very good signing. The guy is a quality player, he's turkish, and he plays the position we need the most. I highly doubt we could have brought in a better player than yakin with our current financial state.
He is a good signing, but it will be interesting how Hagi moulds him into the team as he plays in a very similar way to Necati. Unlike what some of you write, I believe Hakan is at his best when he plays off a striker and not in CM
Maybe you'll revert to a 4-3-2-1 formation with Hakan S being the lone man up front and Necati and Hakan Y playing the '2' behind him.
