sneijder gManchester United have been constantly linked with the Dutchman over the past few seasons, and were believed to have failed with a bid in the summer.

Coach David Moyes is said to be planning a number of moves in the January transfer window, with Sneijder rumoured to be high on his shopping list.

However the 29-year-old has spoken out about his desire to stay in Turkey, and insists that he has heard nothing about a move away.

Sneijder told Beyaz TV, “You would know better than me if I received any offers. Up to now there have been no offers.

“There are rumours about me in every transfer window. I look forward to the end of transfer windows so people stop taking about me. I’m very happy here with the team and the fans and I have no reason to leave.”

“This type of news always happens. You just need to wait until the end of the window.”

The Dutchman joined Galatasaray from Inter Milan last January, but injuries have restricted him to only 28 appearances, in which Sneijder has netted nine goals.
