Drogheda United are delighted to announce that midfielder Emre Topcu has signed a two-year deal with the club.
The 17-year-old, who joined our academy in 2020 at U15 level, made his first team debut away to Sligo Rovers earlier this month.
Emre began the season playing with our U17 side and has since progressed to playing for our U19 side, while also being part of Kevin Doherty’s first team squad on a regular basis.
Topcu, who holds joint Irish and Turkish nationality, signed his first professional deal at a special signing event hosted by the Turkish Embassy in Dublin.
Turkish ambassador Mr Hakan Olcay said it was a pleasure to host such an event and it further highlighted the great links that exist between the port town of Drogheda and Türkiye. The club already has an alliance with current Turkish champions Trabzonspor.
