"Dia was one of the biggest rising stars of the French Ligue 1, this past season. He especially stands out with his fast pace and dribbling attributes. In addition to this, he also scored eight goals last season," explained Aykut Kocaman. "He is a talented player, capable of dribbling the ball very well and setting up chances on goal," the Fenerbahçe manager continued.
"Especially, together with Miroslav Stoch, Issiar Dia will contribute greatly in terms of attacking towards the opponent's goal and setting up chances on goal," said Aykut Kocaman. "I'm very much delighted with this transfer and I can say that expectations from him are high. Of course, there's risks in every transfer, but I am confident that Dia will enchance Fenerbahçe's ability to move quicker towards the opponent's goal," he commented.
The Yellow Canaries boss lastly signalled that another transfer was on his way very shortly. "Our main priority is a striker transfer that we are waiting for. There will probably be some developments on that in a few days. Dia wasn't our top priority, but we are happy to have finalized his transfer as of today," Aykut Kocaman told Fenerbahçe TV.
