Senegal’s Moussa Sow Denies Impending Fenerbahce Exit

Senegal striker Moussa Sow has spoken out concerning rumours that place him at the exit door of his Turkish club side Fenerbahce.

Reports in the Turkish media suggest that his club are already in talks with French Ligue 1 team Olympique Lyonnais, and according to Habere Dikkat a figure of around $6.8million has been attributed to the impending deal.

The 29-year-old was in good form last season, managing to score 14 goals in 33 appearances in the Turkish top flight league, raising his profile as a result and gaining interest in France, where he previously played for Lille before joining the Turkish outfit in 2012.

But despite all of the reports concerning the possible move, the Senegalese player is adamant that he is not going anywhere.

“I say and I repeat, I am very happy to play in this Muslim country,” Sow insisted. “At the moment, there is absolutely nothing concerning me. I am going to focus on my work on my return on 25 June and carry on here,” he added.

My team-mates and I have the same ambition as last year. We want to be crowned Turkey champions,” said the Senegal striker, according to AfricanFootball.

Aside from his time in Turkey during the last four years, Sow’s professional football career has been spent in France, where he began in 2004 at Rennes (including a one-year loan spell at Sedan in 2007) before joining Lille in 2010.

Having represented France at junior level in the under-19 and under-21 teams, he opted to play for the Senegal national team, where he has appeared 29 times, scoring 11 goals.
