Kayserispor Sending Private Jet To Sign Kris Boyd

The Kayserispor club in Turkey are so keen to sign Kris Boyd, the SPL’s record goalscorer, they have offered to send a private jet to fly him to Turkey.

Kris Boyd – will he sign for Kayserispor?

But they will do that only if he is coming to Turkey to sign for them.

Shota Arveladze, the Kayserispor manager said today:

“We offered him a private jet to travel here – but only if he signs. If he is just travelling for talks, it’s too expensive.”

“The last I heard from his agent was it was difficult to travel. It was all a little bit complicated. The plan he had involved flying from Glasgow to Amsterdam, then getting here around 3:30 am.”

“We said that was a little bit late, a little too difficult, but now we are waiting for them to come back with another time to travel.”

The Kayserispor club, who are based in Kayseri and were founded in 1966, have been working for quite a few months to try to sign the Scottish International, but there are some doubts about whether the free agent wants to play in Turkey.

The Turkey club have said they will pull out of the deal if Boyd is only travelling to Turkey to open discussions with other clubs, like Buraspor and Ankaraguca, who are also said to be interested.

Arveladze continued:

“They know my position. If he wants to come, we start training tomorrow and I’m going to be busy for the next five or six weeks doing business and making plans.”

“I’m going to be busy but, hopefully, Kris will come out and sign for us.”

Still no word whether Newcastle are interested in the player, but over the weekend there was a report in both the Sunday Sun and the News Of the World, that Newcastle would hold talks with the player this week.

But it may be that Newcastle are indeed just not interested in this player.

Comments welcome.

    tbh I think Kayserispor could GIVE him a private jet and he still wouldn’t be interested.

    Not saying we’re after him, or that i think we should be, just if they’ve already made him an offer of 50k/week and he hasn’t bitten their hand off already, they should take the hint and move on.

    Can’t believe they regard Kris Boyd as Kaka.

    Think this Turkish team should take the hint. He obviously doesn’t want to go there..

    Shouldn’t they go and get him… possibly, if they are that keen?

    Mike could go get him in his helicopter and hopefully follow the late Steve Hislop or Colin Mcrae’s flight path!

    Watched Paraguay V Japan….. looked 0-0 after the first 10 minutes, funny how there’s always 1 game worth avoiding.

    mactoon – you say that I fair dozed off three times during that spain vs portugal 1st half.

    The worst thing about the japan Vs paraguay game was beglin’s non-stop moaning about how boring it was. I actually wished the vuvuzelas were louder when him and the other moaning grandma lawrenson are on.

    i hope chris hughton has actually seen kris boyd play and isnt interested in him because of his record. he is shocking,
    yes hes scored a bag full of goals but that is in the SPL a league which is officialy rated below the coca cola championship!

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz same ole same ole… how do any of you know how Kris Boyd will play in the PL, you don’t, you’re just saying because he scores bags of goals in the SPL he won’t be able to score them in the PL, how do you know this???

    Didn’t Henrik Larsson score bags of goals for Celtic & then play for Manc Usa & played well for them, even at the end of his career….

    Here are a few more SPL players who’ve not done too bad in the PL:

    Stylian Petrov,
    Duncan Ferguson,
    Mikel Arteta,
    Carlos Cuellar,
    James McFadden,
    Steven Fletcher,
    Graham Dorrans will also do well I think…

    So you see, not all SPL players fail in the PL, just the one’s we seem to buy!!!
