Transfer: Osayi-Samuel set for new Fenerbahçe contract

Bright Osayi-Samuel

Fenerbahçe’s Bright Osayi-Samuel finds himself at the centre of transfer talks, with the Turkish club making significant decisions regarding his future.

According to Italian media, the Süper Lig club is looking to extend the Nigerian international’s contract at the ükrü Saracolu Stadium.

Since his move from Queens Park Rangers during the 2020-21 interim transfer period for €508,000, Osayi-Samuel has garnered praise for his performances at Fenerbahçe.

His success has reportedly caught the attention of several English clubs, notably Brentford, Bournemouth, Everton, Fulham, West Ham United, and a host of other top elite clubs from England.

In fact, he previously told of his desire to return to England and play in the English Premier League, but all attempts to entice him back to England failed.

Meanwhile, with just one year remaining on his contract, Fenerbahçe has deliberated on securing Osayi-Samuel’s services for the long term.

The club, according to Aksam, plans to extend his contract and elevate his salary to bolster their position in potential transfer negotiations.

The Nigerian right-back has been a key figure for Fenerbahçe this season, appearing in 18 matches and starting 17 of them, scoring twice and assisting three times.

The developments around Osayi-Samuel’s contract renewal and the heightened interest from English clubs indicate a pivotal period in the player’s career as transfer talks intensify.
