Fenerbahce agree new deal with Tottenham target

Fenerbahce have reached a pre-agreement with their star midfielder Mehmet Topal following weeks of speculation linking him with a move away from Istanbul.

The Fanatik newspaper have reported that Topal turned down offers from abroad to sign an extension with the Yellow Canaries.

The report states that Topal is close to putting pen to paper on a new deal worth €1.75 million per season.


The Turkish international previously had reached an agreement-in-principle with Tottenham according to the same Fanatik sports newspaper.

Topal’s agent Batur Altiparmak is however, remaining coy over the latest transfer rumour and refused to rule out the possibility that he may leave.

Altiparmak told Turkish-football.com: “Everybody writes something different every other day so I am not going to respond to every transfer rumour.

“Let us wait until the end of the season and see what happens.” 

The 30-year-old has two goals and three assists in 45 appearances for the Yellow Canaries this season.
