Reading midfielder Karacan targets Turkey move

Reading midfielder Jem Karacan admits he's eyeing a move to Turkey.

His Turkish father is a massive Galatasaray fan and midfield battler Karacan, 23, admits he'd love to play there one day.

He said: "I've been here for nine years and this club is close to my heart. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else."

But Karacan, who hopes Reading can pick up their first league win of the season at West Brom tomorrow, added: "A few years ago I was close to going to Besiktas.

"And I think my dad would have a go at me if I didn't play in Turkey one day.

"He wants me to play for Galatasaray. One day in the future, though."
