Tümer Metin (born October 14, 1974) is a Turkish international footballer. He is an attacking midfielder, and currently plays for Kerkyra.

Metin was born in Zonguldak. After playing for four years at Samsunspor, he was transferred to Beşiktaş J.K., along with team-mate İlhan Mansız in 2001. He signed a contract with Fenerbahçe in June 2006 after spending five years at Beşiktaş.

Metin's star shone brightly in Europe during the UEFA Cup 2006-07 Round of 32 tie against AZ Alkmaar. In the first leg in Constantinople Metin contributed the Yellow Canaries' first goal as well as the equalizing brace which made the final score 3 3. The second brace was much more spectacular in that his run came from just within the midfield line and his shot, a cracker from the top corner of the 16 yard box, was placed precisely in the top corner of the goal. Metin also scored the opening goal in the reverse fixture in Alkmaar, a precise curling shot into the side netting, but unfortunately for him the result of the match was 2 2, sending Fenerbahçe out of the competition via away goals. During the January 2008 transfer window, Fenerbahçe sent Metin to Greek Super League side Larissa, with the loan period to expire in June 2008. So far Metin has found success in Greece, even scoring his first goal in his debut for the new outfit.In August 9, 2011 he signed a 1 year contract with Kerkyra.
