Galatasaray had targeted Barlaser a source close to the club revealed to Turkish-Football.

The Lions have drawn up a shortlist of free transfers they will target this summer.

Barlaser was among the players they had been keen on but will no longer push for a move as he will not be free.

Barlaser has been on loan at Rotherham this season making 27 appearances for the League One side.

Rotherham will be promoted if League One is canceled due to coronavirus disruptions on the points per game system.

Barlaser was born in Newcastle but is eligible to play for Turkey due to his Turkish heritage.
