Yildiray Basturk wants a move to Blackburn Rovers on the recommendation of Tugay.

The Daily Mail says Stuttgart midfielder Basturk has spoken to former international team-mate Tugay who has recommended Blackburn as a homely club where he can fast become a crowd favourite and utilise his attacking skills to good effect.

Blackburn are desperate to add goals to their game and the supply has been poor this year so the 31-year-old will be a useful addition.
