Tuncay issues come and get me plea

Middlesbrough striker Tuncay Sanli has issued a come and get me plea to Premier League clubs interested in securing his services as he bids for a return to the English top flight. The 27-year-old Turkish international - who has scored 19 times for his country - is expected to leave the Riverside Stadium outfit this summer following the club's relegation to the Championship.

And with the former Fenerbahce man having netted 15 league goals for Gareth Southgate's side since arriving in 2007 - including several acrobatic efforts - interest in his services is widespread.

Liverpool, Aston Villa and Fulham have already been linked with a move for the front-man, with Tottenham Hotspur the latest side reportedly set to swoop for his signature.

And the player has revealed he hopes to continue plying his trade in the Premier League for several more years, emulating fellow countryman Tugay.

"There's been contact with several teams and interest from England, Germany and Spain," he said in The Sun.

"But I want to play for another three years in England like Tugay did.

"He was very good in the UK at Blackburn and left his mark.

"Football in England takes over your life."
