Lotito happy Lazio pulled plug on Yilmaz deal

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has no regrets missing out on Burak Yilmaz.

The Galatasaray striker came close to moving to Lazio in the summer.

"It's good that we did not sign Burak Yilmaz, as he would've caused problems in the locker room and his agent's approach was tantamount to extortion.

"Mauro Zarate remains my biggest disappointment. He was also the biggest investment, as I paid €22m for him."
