Colin Kazim-Richards joined Fenerbahce prior to the 2007-2008 season from English side Sheffield United. After signing a four-year deal with the club, he’s quickly developed a reputation as a rising star in Turk futbol and has been a key reserve this season.
Kazim-Richards has proven to be a valuable transfer for Fenerbahce in a short period of time. After making 27 appearances for Sheffield United last season, he came to Kadikoy for his playmaking ability and potential. His first goal as a Yellow Canary came in UEFA Champions League against PSV Eindhoven. Additionally, Kazim-Richards has Turkish citizenship because his mother is Turkish Cypriot and therefore, Kazim-Richards does not count in the foreign player limit for Fenerbahce.
So far in the 2007-2008 season, Kazim-Richards has made 26 appearances for Fenerbahce. He also earned his first cap for the Turkish National Team in 2007 in a friendly against Brazil.
