Josue was left out of the 2-2 draw against Galatasaray leading to rumours that the Argentinian could be leaving in January.

“Josue is happy here, his family also moved to Bursa, I always meet with them, this was a tactical decision, there is nothing to talk about here,” Bölükbaşı was quoted as saying by Eurosport TR.

Josue is currently on loan at Bursaspor but the Green Crocodiles want to make his stay permanent.

The Argentinian midfielder rose through the Porto youth ranks before joining Paços Ferreira in 2011 and then returning to the Portuguese giants in 2013 on a four-year deal.

The 24-year-old has five goals and three assists in all competitions this season.

Bursaspor are currently in fifth place on 30 points after 18 games.

The Green Crocodiles have scored the highest number of goals in the Süper Lig this season (36).

Bursaspor play Gençlerbirliği at home next weekend, Josue is expected to play.
