Luis Enrique talks up Arda Turan, Aleix Vidal

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique says that he is "happy" that both Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal will soon be available to make their official debuts for the club.

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has revealed that he is 'looking forward' to seeing both Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal in action for the Catalan club.

Turan and Vidal signed for the Spanish giants from Atletico Madrid and Sevilla respectively in the summer transfer window, but have not yet been allowed to appear due to Barcelona's transfer ban.

That embargo has now officially ended, however, and the pair could make their debuts in the Copa del Rey against Espanyol next week.

"The performances of Arda and Aleix Vidal will show how much they have adapted to the team," Enrique told reporters.

"I am happy that they are almost ready to make their debut. They have been waiting for this moment for a long time. They will add something extra to the team that we need."

Neither Turan nor Vidal was registered in time to feature against Espanyol in La Liga this weekend.
