Nigerian international Femi Ajilore has told SavidNews.com that he looks forward to jumping at any potential move to Turkey this summer.

The 28 years old midfielder who is a free agent after seeing out his contract with Holland topflight side FC Groningen at the end 2012/2013 season insists he is waiting from a serious interest from top clubs in Europe.

Femi divulged to SavidNews.com that he is considering a move to Turkey after earlier snubbing calls from several top league clubs in Europe.

“It’s the delight of every player to be attached to a club in Europe – but for me it is no regret- I’m out of contract and now a free-agent -waiting for serious interests from top clubs in Europe and possibly in Turkey.

“I’ve received many offers from top clubs in Europe – last month in Germany, Ukraine, Holland, Russia and Denmark but didn’t materialize as they were not too serious interest.”

“My agent has told me there are couple of interests from Turkey –I’ll jump at any serious interest from
Turkey because they have a good weather – the deal according to my agent will be sought out in next few weeks,” says Femi a holder of Ghanaian passport.

The Nigerian midfielder ended his four years contract with Dutch side FC Groningen after completing a season-long loan deal Swedish side Brøndby IF in 2012.

The former Nigerian side FC Ebedei midfielder was a member of the Nigerian U-23 national team in the 2008 Beijing that won the silver medal and later his international debut for the Super Eagles against Colombia on 19 November 2008.

Meanwhile, the former 2008 Olympics silver-winner midfielder has appealed to Nigerians to continue giving maximum support to Super Eagles head coach, Stephen Keshi to record more success with senior national team.

Femi while commending the Super Eagles coach on success recorded at the AFCON 2013, noted that the gaffer deserves more supports from Nigerians than damaging criticism to give his best in guiding the national team to making more international glory.

He however insisted that his dream to play for Nigeria remains topmost desire, though currently focused on putting his club career in order.

“No matter who coaches the national team – they need our (Nigerians) support – he (Stephen Keshi) is doing his best by contributing to making the Super Eagles great again – for me he has done well most important will the nation cup – I also still pride returning to the national team but for now getting my club career back on track is top of the agenda,” he noted.
