Defender Yasin Cakmak joined Fenerbahce prior to the 2007-2008 season. The native of Rize, Turkiye, came to Fener after playing four years with his hometown team, Caykur Rizespor.
Cakmak played 86 games for Caykur Rizespor, attracting the attention of Turkiye National Team Manager Fatih Terim. Terim called Cakmak into international duty in 2006, and he earned his first cap against Azerbaijan in March of that year.

At his signing press conference, Cakmak stated “I won’t disappoint the people who trust in me. Fenerbahce is the ultimate champion and a great club. I am very glad that you think that I deserve to be a part of this great club. I will work really hard not to disappoint anyone.”
