Mehmet spent much time being loaned out from Sivasspor and also being sold a couple of times. Firstly was his loan spell at Çarşambaspor where he played only a handful of games. He then returned to Sivasspor to become a prominent member of the team. In 2003 Mehmet was sold to Antalyaspor where his career never hit the same heights as while at Sivasspor. The same happened again when he was sold to Türk Telekomspor the following season.
His performances lead Sivasspor to recall him to the first team where he has become club captain and a regular goal scorer for the Kırmızı-Beyaz with near a 1:1 ratio of goals per game.
