Yilmaz happy to stay at Galatasaray

Galatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz has suggested he is ready to turn down a lucrative move away from the club in the summer and see out his contract with the Turkish champions.

Yilmaz, 27, is the leading scorer in the Turkish Super League with 22 strikes this season and his performances in the Champions League attracted the interest of some of Europe's top clubs.

Premier League sides Liverpool and Manchester United are among the possible destinations for Yilmaz, but the Turkey international insists he is content in Istanbul.

"I'm really happy at Galatasaray," he told Lig TV. "I have a five-year contract here. If an offer comes on the table then it's the club's decision which will matter."

Yilmaz and strike partner Umut Bulut have combined to score more than half of Galatasaray's goals this season, while January recruit Didier Drogba has added five of his own.

With Bulut set to return to French side Toulouse after a season on loan at Galatasaray, Yilmaz was eager to point out the contributions of both he and Drogba.

"Didier Drogba could easily play with me or Umut Bulut," Yilmaz said. "We complete each other. He's an excellent player but one should also notice the contributions that Umut Bulut had made.

"He kept us at the top of the table in the first half of the season. Drogba is great but Umut was also influential."
