Trabzonspor president on Burak Yilmaz: "Fulham want him and we shall now see"

The president of Turksih side Trabzonspor has admitted that Fulham retain an interest in their striker, Burak Yilmaz, and that a deal is potentially imminent.

Martin Jol has been heavily linked with the forward, ever since rumours first began to circulate of his availability in the January transfer window. Since then, Yilmaz has continued to prove his worth to his club and has now pitched in with 32 goals in the Turkish Super Lig. In any competition, that is an amount that turns heads.

That has proven the case as Fulham are not the only ones on his trail:

"Lazio, Tottenham and Fulham want him and we shall now see," said the Turkish side's president, Sadir Sener.

"We have a roadmap for this and we want this done."

Interest doesn't stop with this trio, however, with Manchester United, Arsenal and West Ham United also following the player's fortunes. Yilmaz himself, though, only made one thing clear - his intention to play for a big, European side:

"I dream of a big European club," Yilmaz said.

"I have talked with the technical staff and president Sener and I told them that my dream is to grow as a player.

"We talked for a long time and everything was calm, like a child turning to his father.

"We will soon know my future and I hope it will be a good club where I play, but I do say thanks to everyone at Trabzonspor."

It's certainly an outlandish analogy but maybe Fulham can be the new father figure he seeks. Just so long as he returns our unconditional love.
