Hannover swoop for Gulselam

Hannover have signed midfielder Ceyhun Gulselam on a free transfer from Galatasaray.

The 26-year-old, who can also operate at centre-half, joins on a two-year deal after spending three seasons in the Turkish capital during which time he won league and cup honours.

"With Ceyhun Gulselam we have undertaken for the six (defensive midfield) position a player who brings the experience of over 100 top-flight games in Turkey," sporting director Dirk Dufner told the club's official website.

"He also played for the Turkish national team and for Galatasaray in the Champions League."

Ceyhun spent eight years in the youth system at Bayern Munich but came to prominence at Trabzonspor, where he won the first of his six Turkey caps, earning himself a move to Gala in 2011.
