Galatasaray manager keen to keep hold of West Ham target

Galatasaray manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu has stated that he is keen to keep hold of Burak Yilmaz.

The Turkish international striker has been linked with a move away from Istanbul after being left out of his sides opening game and being substituted against Osmanlispor.

“I do not Burak Yilmaz or any other to my players to leave. We have received offers for Telles. I hope to continue with the squad I have,” Hamzaoglu was quoted as saying by Fanatik.

Galatasaray recently rejected a second bid from West Ham United for Yilmaz according to LigTV.

The Turkish international has been closely linked with a move to West Ham since the arrival of Slaven Bilic as head coach.

The Turkish international striker has scored 58 goals in his last 87 games at club level and still has another four-years left on his contract.
