Asamoah Gyan has refused to be drawn on reports that Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are looking to sign him.

The Ghana striker has been linked with a move away from the Sunderland with Spurs and Marseille both been linked with moves on the on transfer deadline day however nothing materialised and the player looked set to remain in the North East.

However with the transfer market open in Turkey until Monday midnight, any player in theory could still leave the Premier League to play there and Galatasaray along with Fenerbahce are understood to be interested in the 25-year-old who only joined Sunderland just over 12 months ago.

In an exclusive interview with skysports.com, Gyan moved to quash rumours of a move saying:”I heard the news like everyone, before I came to England, there was a transfer bid from a Turkish club and I choose to come here.

“I am flattered by their interest but like I said it is up to Sunderland.

“I am at Sunderland, if they accept a bid from any club, I will have to speak to that club, as you know I am preparing for a game against Brazil and not thinking about any transfer.”
