Club careerEdit

In July 2007, Parlak was bought by Fenerbahçe from Kayserispor and signed a five-year contract.[1] It was speculated that Real Madrid and Valencia also wanted to sign him in the 2007–08 transfer season. On 14 June, Parlak was transferred to Ankaraspor along with Özgür Çek and €4.2 million in return for Özer Hurmacı.

He is famous for his quick goal (scored in 15 seconds) against Sivasspor at the 32nd week of the 2005–06 season.

Parlak left Kayseri Erciyesspor in the 2015–16 winter transfer window.[2]

International careerEdit

In the 2006 European U19 Championships, despite Turkey disappointing their fans by losing all three of their group stage encounters, Parlak was crowned with the golden boot at the tournament scoring five goals in three appearances.
