Galatasaray move for Villa Bosman Reo-Coker

Galatasaray are chasing Aston Villa midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker.

The Daily Star says the Istanbul club have made initial contact with Reo-Coker’s representatives about the prospect of signing the former West Ham star next summer.

However, Gerard Houllier has already hinted that he wants to offer Reo-Coker a new contract, while the 26-year-old is likely to have a number of other offers on the table come January.

Villa have yet to call the midfielder in for talks over a fresh deal, though the club are expected to do so before the end of the month.
