Matthew Anderson, a renowned volleyball star from the USA, has been spotted on the upcoming season’s roster for the Turkish team, Ziraat Bankasi. This was observed on the official web service of the Turkish Volleyball Federation. However, it is essential to note that a listing on this website does not equate to an official confirmation of a player’s transfer. Neither Ziraat Bankasi nor Zenit St. Petersburg have publicly acknowledged Anderson’s potential move from the Russian powerhouse or his arrival in Turkey.
Earlier, WorldofVolley had reported, referencing sources and information from the Russian sports outlet, BO Sport, that Anderson had communicated his decision to Zenit St. Petersburg. He reportedly informed the team that he would not be playing for them in the 2023/24 season, even though he is under an existing contract. As of now, Zenit has made no announcement regarding Anderson’s departure, and Ziraat remains silent on his addition. Yet, Anderson’s name unmistakably appears on the Ziraat roster for the 2023/2024 season.
