Manchester United have been linked with a move for Turkey Under-21 international Sercan Yildirim after the player claimed he had been contacted by the Red Devils.

The Bursaspor striker, valued at £5m, is considered one of the country's promising players and has produced some eye-catching performances so far this season.

Yildirim, 18, is joint top-scorer of the Turkcell Super Lig with Galatasary striker Milan Baros having found the net four times in as many matches.

"Manchester United have been in contact with my family and the president of my club - that makes me very happy," Yildirim told Turkish media.
