Okan Aydın (Turkish pronunciation: [oˈkan ajˈdɯn], born 8 May 1994) is a German-Turkish professional footballer who plays for Rot-Weiß Erfurt.[2]

Club career[edit]

He went through Bayer Leverkusen's youth ranks and eventually made his Bundesliga debut in October 2012 in a 2–2 draw with Mainz 05, as a substitute for Simon Rolfes. On 6 September 2013, he joined Eskişehirspor on a three-year contract.[3] After not being able to establish himself at the Turkish club and earning only a single cap during the 2013–14 season, he moved back to Germany and joined 3. Liga side Rot-Weiß Erfurt. There he signed a one-year contract including a two-year extension clause.[4]

International career[edit]

Aydın played for the Turkey national under-19 football team, which won the silver medal at the 2013 Mediterranean Games in Mersin, Turkey. He also represented Turkey at the 2013 UEFA European Under-19 Championship.
