Lucescu denies agreement with Fenerbahce

Shakhtar Donetsk head coach Mircea Lucescu has denied reaching an agreement with Fenerbahçe to take over as manager in the summer.

“Let me say this clearly, I have not been in any contract with any club in Turkey, I have not been following the Turkish league closely, these are just baseless newspaper rumours,” Lucescu told the Millet newspaper.

The Romanian manager has been closely linked with the Yellow Canaries over recent weeks and is reported to be considering his options due to the security situation in Ukraine.
