Galatasaray manager Mustafa Denizli has stated that he is in the dark regarding the future of his star striker Burak Yilmaz.

The Turkish international scored during Galatasaray’s disappointing 3-2 defeat at the hands of the newly promoted Osmanlispor.

“I have not received any information regarding Burak. But I wouldn’t want him to leave. We are depleted and can not reinforce during this window,” Denizli stated after the game (via Hurriyet).

West Ham have made a €7 million bid for  Yilmaz according to the Hurriyet. The report claims that the Hammers have put forward an offer that will see the Premier League outfit pay €6 million upfront and a further €1 million instalment if the club ensure Europa League football.

Galatasaray could be tempted to accept the offer considering the club is facing the prospect of a UEFA competition ban for failing to meet Financial Fair Play regulations.

Yılmaz has lifted the league title as well as the Turkish Cup twice since joining the club and has been one of the most constantly prolific strikers in the league over the past few seasons.
