Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina has admitted he is happy on loan at Galatasaray but is uncertain what will happen at the end of the season.
Lemina is currently on a temporary move at Galatasaray who are involved in the Super Lig title race and remain on course for the Turkish Cup after reaching the semi-finals.
“There is a very different Galatasaray in the second half. A high-level Galatasaray has emerged,” the Gabonese midfielder told reporters, according to the club website.
“The reason for this is that a certain game order is settled as we play together. I think we know each other better and reflect it on the field. A new Galatasaray appeared.
“I am very happy in Galatasaray. We will look at the end of the season and see what happens next. “
The Gabon international does have another two-years remaining on his Southampton contract but struggled for playing time last season.
Galatasaray do have a €16m buy option but would be unable to afford him unless the Saints agree to accept a lower fee.
Additionally, a loan extension could be another option if the Lions hope to keep the 26-year-old on beyond the summer.
Lemina has one goal in 24 appearances for Galatasaray across all competitions this season and has played a key role in his side’s resurgence over the second half of the season.
The Lions are currently second in the Super Lig, three points behind league leaders Basaksehir.
