GS already signed Meryem Boz as opposite for next year. I would prefer Hande Baladin but looks like both Vakifbank and Eczacibasi demand too much money even for loans of their players. There are also no news about Cagla transfer of GS. I guess they are waiting to confirm the setter first.
I agree on Serdar, I would prefer Cagla-Grothues or Tomkom-Baladin duo. With solid receiving from Leys & Grothues, Cagla can play fast, I have high expectations from the new American MB. It sounded like she has no problems of scoring.
If GS can't sign Cagla, it is best to sign with Tomkom and risk receiving and transfer also Baladin. Tomkom can deliver the sets Hande & Meryem like.
I usually don't get to the hype train in terms of American collegiate superstars turning pro because A LOT of them failed to translate their performances in the pro league. But so far, the NCAA middle blocker alums have not disappointed me yet.
I have high hopes about Inky doing the job that is expected of her. She's like Foluke with better blocking. The biggest hurdling block for her is to stay healthy since she got major injuries 3 times already.
