Nigeria international Chinedu Obasi has dismissed reports linking him with a move to Turkish side, Besiktas, in the summer transfer market.
Reports that emanated from the Turkish media claimed that manager Slaven Bilic was exploring ways to sign the striker whose contract with Schalke 04 will expire at the end of the season.
Chinedu Obasi has reiterated that he has had no contact whatsoever with Besiktas, but to be on the safe side he added that there’s a small possibility that an intermediary may be in talks with the Istanbul club without his knowledge.
“‘I don’t know where the news is coming from. I have not had any contact with Besiktas,” Obasi revealed to SL10.ng.
”Maybe an agent is talking with them but I am not.”
The 28-year-old Obasi has spent the last eight years in Germany, playing for Hoffenheim before switching to Schalke 04, where he has played nonstop for the past three years.
