‘Have Serdar, give us Ömer!’

Updated: January 1, 2016

Torku Konyaspor have reportedly made an offer for Serdar Kurtuluş. Beşiktaş want Ömer Ali Şahiner in return in a player exchange deal, while Konyaspor are demanding a € 1 million fee on top of that exchange. Negotiations are reportedly still ongoing.

According to Milliyet, Şahiner ended up in Beşiktaş‘ transfer plans after Konyaspor made an offer for right-back Serdar Kurtuluş. Kurtuluş has been relegated to a bench role after the arrival of Andreas Beck this summer and he hasn’t had any playing time in the league so far this season. He only featured in the two cup games against Karabükspor and Sivas Belediyespor.

Beşiktaş are therefore willing to sell Kurtuluş to Konyaspor and the player himself is also interested in the move, but the Black Eagles want Ömer Ali Şahiner in return. Şahiner is a versatile player, who can play on the entire right wing. He has started as a right-back in almost all of Konyaspor’s games so far this season. It is reported that the technical staff of Beşiktaş have given their approval to this transfer.

Konyaspor is willing to participate in an exchange between the two players, but they want € 1 million in return. Beşiktaş are however not willing to pay an additional transfer fee and the negotiations between the two clubs are therefore ongoing.

Şahiner is 23 years old and has 1.5 years remaining on his contract with Konyaspor.
