Though he’s yet to make a first-team appearance in Istanbul, he was named on the bench for a Europa League game last season and was part of the club’s pre-season training camp.

He’s viewed by City as a player with significant potential and should the loan prove successful, the Tigers will look to make the deal permanent.

Aydınlık is the latest new arrival to City’s academy following in the footsteps of Harry Vaughan who burst onto the first-team scene in April when he made his debut at Blackburn Rovers in the Championship, and more recently, Henry Sandat, who arrived this week.

Striker Sandat arrived from crisis club Southend United and though he has gone into the club’s Under-21 squad managed by Conor Sellars, head coach Liam Rosenior will take a closer look at him in first-team training at Cottingham.
