Ashley Young is interesting Turkish Super Lig side Istanbul Basaksehir, according to a report.

The future of the Manchester United 31-year-old winger Ashley Young remains uncertain and The Sun reports the former Aston Villa man’s future could lie in Turkey.

Basaksehir, who finished second behind Besiktas in Turkey, want Young’s wealth of experience to guide them in next season’s Champions League.

Young, who was linked with a move to China in the winter transfer window, has just 12 months left on his current deal with an option of a further year, but after six years with United his time appears to be coming to an end.

He only made eight Premier League starts last season under Jose Mourinho and 23 appearances in total.

Back in April, Young though claimed he still “had fire in his belly”“There is always speculation, especially when there is a transfer window and you are not playing.

But I have always said that I want to play as much as possible. What the future holds I am not too sure. I am just concentrating on each game and when the manager calls on me I will give 100 per cent and look to play as well as I can. That is what I am concentrating on now. That is the main focus for me and then we will see what happens,” said Young.

Swansea and Everton were both linked with Young in January.
