Budapest Honved chief Cordella encourages Premier League offers for Galatasaray target Balint Vecsei

Galatasaray have been warned their hopes of a deal for Budapest Honved star Balint Vecsei is not nailed on.

Gala are expected to wrap up the signing of Vecsei in the coming weeks, however, Budapest Honved sports director Fabio Cordella is inviting Premier League clubs to consider the midfielder.

Cordella confirms Gala are keen to do a deal, but he believes Vecsei, standing at 6ft 1in, and just 20 years of age, would thrive in England.

"There is a real interest from Galatasaray," he told "To date no English club have been interested in him.

"But I think the player deserves the English stage."

Cardiff City and Crystal Palace have been linked with Vecsei this season, courtesy of football director Iain Moody's interest, who left the Bluebirds for Palace last month.
