Interest in Oztumer cooling

Interest in Oztumer cooling

After 15 goals, and one year left on his contract, it's inevitable that interest in playmaker Erhun Oztumer will be a feature of the upcoming summer. In fact reports came about earlier this week linking Oztumer with moves to various Championship clubs.

The Bristol Post reported that Bristol City were interested, with a whole host of other mid-table Championship sides linked.

However, at this stage it seems that the level of interest in Oztumer is just that, and no firm bids have been received by Walsall. The
Express & Star have also taken that line today with Joe Masi highlighting a number of reasons why Oztumer wouldn't necessarily be a good fit for any of the linked clubs.

It's going to be a struggle to keep Oztumer at the club, but many feel that if Jon Whitney is to have any level of success next season, then he will have to remain at the Banks's.
