Tuncay officially joins Middlesbrough

TUNCAY Sanli has signed a four-year contract at Middlesbrough after undergoing a two-day medical with the Premiership club.
Tuncay, requested the number 17 shirt - the number he wears for Turkish National team and he said ,he was thrilled at the chance to play in the Premier League.
"I am very happy to be here and to sign for Middlesbrough. I have heard a lot about the club and have seen the team many times on television.Ever since I was a young boy, I have wanted to play in the English Premier League and I know that Middlesbrough are one of the most influential teams in the top division, so I am excited about this chance."Boro chief executive Keith Lamb said: "We are delighted that Tuncay has committed his future to Middlesbrough."He is a major star in Turkey so it is a big coup for us to have signed a player of his quality on a free transfer."We will now apply for his work permit and don't expect any problems with that."Tuncay must leave the country while his application for a work permit is processed, although the club do not foresee any problems as he has played in enough of his country's internationals over the last two years to qualify.The 25-year-old will take a short-break before returning to Teesside on July 6 for pre-season training with his new team-mates.
