Turkey Star plays down Arsenal return

Ozyakup focused on Besiktas success

Besiktas midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup has ruled out a possible return to Arsenal during the winter transfer window.

The 23-year-old came through the Gunners ranks and made just two senior appearances between 2008 and 2012.

Ozyakup has since then moved on to Turkish club Besiktas, where he has made a name for himself.

The Gunners have been linked with their former graduate since the start of the campaign, but the Turkey international is focused on winning the league with the Istanbul side.

"There are a lot of rumours but I am not interested my only goal is to win the league with Besiktas this season," he told reporters.

The talented attacker has amassed five assists and three goals in 10 league outings this season.
