The 28-year-old, who will play the remainder of season with the club… and already knows a few faces, having played with Kalifa Cisse and against assistant coach Nick Montgomery, overseas.
“I was captain of Reading Football Club, captain of Bolton and the youth sides of Turkey, hopefully I’m a leader and hopefully I can show the lads on and off the pitch about being a good professional.” – Jem Karacan
