Celta Vigo signing Okay Yokuslu tipped for 'Man Utd or Barcelona' move

Celta Vigo signing Okay Yokuslu is being tipped for a future move to Manchester United.

Celta completed the signing of Yokuslu from Turkish side Trabzonspor in a deal worth around £5.2million.

The 24-year-old first made his name at Kayserispor and his old manager Suleyman Hurma believes the midfielder has the quality to eventually end up at top clubs like Manchester United or Barcelona.

“I signed him aged 16 and we played him in the first-team for four years," Hurma said. “He is such an underrated player, he is now at a league where he can get himself noticed.

“I'll tell you this, give him a year at Celta Vigo and he'll end up at Manchester United or Barcelona.

“He is a player with the ability and mentality to play at the highest level.

“Coaches in Turkey used him as a defender because he is tall, ignoring his midfield and offensive capabilities.

“He is an intelligent, creative midfielder with a wonderful long shot.

“I don't have to get into his defensive strengths.

“He is at a club and a league that appreciate a player with his credentials."
