Darmstadt continue buying players and in this step they signed Hamit Altintop. Hamit who had played for SG Wattenscheid, Schalke 04 , Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, was under contract with Galatasaray but terminated his contract with Turkish club and joined Darmstadt until end of the season.
34 years old midifield played for Galatasaray 9 times (1 goal) in this season. His twin brother, Halil plays for Augsburg.
"The fact that such a player comes to Darmstadt 98 with such a vita, experience and charisma is certainly something special. We are very pleased that Hamit wants to create with us the supposedly impossible." Torsten Frings, Darmstadt head coach said to SV Darmstadt official website.
Hamit can play as central and right midifield. However he capped 84 times for Turkey national team, but he was born in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.
"The team has already proved in the past years what it is capable of doing, and now we have 16 games in which we will try everything, and I'm looking forward to it." Hamit Altintop said after signing for Lilies.
