Veteran commits to Galatasaray

Turkish international striker Hakan Sükür has agreed a new contract with Galatasaray SK.

Happy to stay
Although the 33-year-old has extended his stay with the Istanbul side, the details of the new deal have not been released. A Galatasaray statement said the player did not make any financial demands during talks over his future. "The player turned down several tempting offers and preferred to stay at Galatasaray and enjoy our centenary with us next year," the club said.

Very experienced
Hakan Sükür returned to Galatasaray before the 2003/04 season for a third spell at the club he helped to UEFA Cup success in 1999/00. A vastly experienced forward, he holds Turkey's goalscoring record, having found the net 45 times in 95 appearances for his country.
