Former Turkish Super Lig champions Fenerbahce are planning to offer Super Eagles defender Bright Osayi-Samuel a two-year contract extension, Soccernet.ng reports.

Osayi-Samuel has been impressive for Fenerbahce in the last four seasons since he left QPR. The 26-year-old defender played an important role for Fenerbahce last season, registering four goals and one assist in 24 appearances in the run-up to their second-place finish in the Super Lig.

However, there have been strong talks that Osayi-Samuel may favour a return to the English Premier League. And he has been linked with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leeds United, and Crystal Palace, albeit nothing is concrete yet.

But in a recent development, NTV has reported that Jose Mourinho wants Osayi-Samuel to remain at Fenerbahce. Hence, they are looking to entice the Nigerian with a two-year extension. But Osayi-Samuel, who is currently on a €1.8 million wants €2.5 million in his new contract. But both parties are yet to agree.

Fenerbahce have to decide on a course of action this summer because Osayi-Samuel’s contract expires at the end of next season.

A sale would profit the former Turkish champions massively because they acquired Osayi-Samuel for just over €500k four years ago, but he is now worth €8.5 million according to Transfermark. And that is a lot of money for any Turkish club.
