West Ham target Burak Yılmaz dropped a hint that he could be heading for a Galatasaray exit after he waved to fans following his goal in the 3-2 defeat against Osmanlıspor yesterday.

Yılmaz scored a stunning goal against the Ankara based side but the talk of the town was not his fine strike but his goal celebration.

The Turkish international defender waved at fans after the game. The celebration was interpreted as a final farewell to Galatasaray fans.

West Ham made a €7 million bid for Galatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz according to the Hurriyet.

The report claims that the Premier League side have submitted a bid that will see the Hammers pay €6 million upfront and a further €1 million instalment if the club ensure Europa League football.

The Istanbul giants 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 a prolific record at Galatasaray scoring 81 times in 140 games and winning two league titles during his time at the Lions.

The 30-year-old striker also has years of Champions League and Turkish national team experience under his belt.
