A senior executive at Fenerbahce has refused to confirm if the Turkish club will be signing Manchester City playmaker David Silva.

Silva has been linked with a move to Turkey in the past 24 hours, with claims a deal could be done with Manchester City before today’s Turkish transfer deadline.

Sabah have reported Fenerbahce are looking to close in on the Spain international, and that an agreement over his transfer to the Turkish giants has been reached.

However, there’s been no confirmation from Fenerbahce that a deal has been agreed for the Manchester City attacker, with one official coy when asked about Silva: “We can’t confirm.”

Fenerbahce should today announce the signing of Tottenham Hotspur forward Vincent Janssen on a season long loan deal, and the Turkish giants have also this week been linked with Chelsea’s Diego Costa and Everton’s Oumar Niasse.

At this stage it seems Silva will not be heading to Fenerbahce, despite the arrival of Bernard Silva at Manchester City this summer. Even though the Portugal international was signed from AS Monaco, Silva has started the Premier League side’s opening three games, and it’s unlikely Pep Guardiola would allow the move.
