Okan Yılmaz (born on 16 May 1978) is a Turkish professional footballer.[1]

Early life and career[edit]

Yılmaz started playing football for Karayollari Yolspor in 1988. His professional career began in İnegölspor when he was signed up in 1996. Two years later, in 1998, he was transferred to Bursaspor. Yılmaz spent the brunt of his career at the Bursa-based club, leading the Süper Lig in goals scored twice (2001 and 2003). He was courted by CSKA Moscow and Olympique de Marseille in 2003. A transfer fee from l'OM was accepted by Bursaspor, but Yılmaz didn't agree to the contracts terms.[2]

International career[edit]

Yılmaz started his international career with the Turkey U-21 squad in 2000. He was promoted to the senior squad in 2003, but has not been called up since 2004. He has five goals in eight caps, as well as a third place finish in the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup.[1] In the semi-final v France, Yilmaz had the opportunity to equalise with a penalty, but missed, and consequently, Turkey lost 3-2, and went to the third place playoff.
