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.
“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.
