Eren Derdiyok wanted Basel

Basel made a bid for the player however Fatih Terim did not want to let him leave.

Galatasaray’s striker Eren Derdiyok had a final day transfer offer for him rejected by Fatih Terim, according to reports in Turkey. FC Basel of Switzerland were interested in signing the player and made a €3 million bid to bring him back to his homeland.
