North Queensland Fury have announced the signings of Avispa Fukuoka midfielder Ufuk Talay and former Newcastle Jets utility Paul Kohler. "I thought Paul did a very good job at Newcastle, he was an unsung hero," Fury coach Ian Ferguson said.
"He's the type of player who can play different positions, centre half, midfield and right and left back."
Talay and Kohler join Newcastle Jets captain Jade North, Sydney FC trio Robbie Middleby, Jacob Timpano and Brendon Santalab and New Zealand international Jeremy Brockie as official Fury signings. Fury owner Matheson said the quality of the recruits had not been lost on rival clubs.
"I know that the other clubs in the competition are taking us way more seriously now that they see the roster we're putting together," he told the Townsville Bulletin.
