Ex-Ibrox star turns down Euro giants

Former Rangers midfielder Aaron Ramsey has reportedly turned down a move to Turkish giants Galatasaray.

The Serie A side have agreed a deal to bring Paul Pogba back to the club, while Ramsey saw a previous move to Turkey to link up with former Juve boss Andrea Pirlo fall through. The player who missed the decisive Rangers penalty in the Europa League is understood to want a move to the Premier League. (Calciomercato)

It had been reported the player's representatives had been in touch with the Scottish champions but it is not something they will pursue with the player attracting interest from around Europe, including teams in the Premier League and the Bundesliga.
