Turkish champions Bursaspor have signed USA and Villarreal striker Jozy Altidore on loan until the end of the season.

Bursa snapped up Rangers striker Kenny Miller earlier in the window, and have now added the former Hull City man to their ranks, as they look to win a second consecutive Super Lig title.

Altidore has already gained 32 official caps for the USA at just 21 years old, and has long been regarded as the next big thing for the national side, though he has been less impressive in Spain.

Altidore joins a long list of big names to move to Turkey in the window, along with Simao, Miller and Hugo Almeida to name a few, as the Turkish league appears to be gaining momentum to establish itself as a major power in Europe.


With Ronaldo and Adebayor up front, Real Madrid can finally beat Barcelona! Casillas, Kaka and Ramos are absolutely immense!

Can someone please explian to me what is the point of Walcott, especially when we have just sold someone like Eduardo. Does Arsene Wenger have any idea what he is doing?! If I could go back to the days of Anelka, I totally would!

Do any of you guys seriously believe that Liverpool, Tottenham or Man City can topple Man Utd and take the Premier League trophy? Even if Liverpool had Kuyt and Mascherano back I can't see it!

How did Russia end up with the World Cup. You would have thought the England bid was the best, closely followed by the Spain one. But Russia? Seriously!?

Here is my 'Bright Future XI'. Cech is in nets - hes not THAT young, but still got about 10 years left at the top! Ivanovic, Ramsey, Kompany and Young would be in defence. Milner, obi Mikel, Aquilani and Tevez in midfield. Santo and Sturridge would be a class front two.

Top teams that should be at the World Cup:France, Germany, Italy, Serbia, Uruguay

What is is with Chelsea these days - they never seem to give youth a chance? Yes we have youngsters like McEachran and Kalou coming through slowly, but when are we goping to replace the 30-somthings - the likes of Cole, Carvalho, Ballack, Malouda, Bosingwa and Ferreira???

My dream Man United XI would be Foster in nets, with Gallas, Gibbs, Clichy and Vermaelen in defence. Fletcher would lead a midfield made up of Essien, Babel and Cole, with youngsters Welbeck and Macheda up front. How awesome a team would that be?!

Are Newcastle fans supposed to support Celtic or Rangers? AC or Inter? Its difficult to tell!

Are Barry and Given some of the most under-rated footballers ever? If they werer playing at Man Utd instead of City then they would be getting comapred to the Ronaldo's of this world. As it is, its like they play Soccer like a bunch of donkeys. Add Friedel to the under-rated list too!

My favourite team is Arsenal. With Fabregas, Arshavin, Nasri and van Persie we have the makings of an amazing team.

Did you see the goals that Saha scored? Golacccccciooooo! Love it when you Bet on football and it all comes off :) Buying some new Soccer Boots with my winnings :)
