Alpasan Ozturk has not left Standard Liege and is likely to go to Turkey, but, somewhat surprisingly, they may loan us a goalkeeper. We do not really have a need there, but they do have two strikers who might come over on loan.
Standard Liege manager, Guy Luzon, said in an interview that Yohann Thuram is the only major player likely to leave Standard during the winter transfer window. Alpaslan Öztürk has not left Standard.
The transfer was announced on Saturday was a six-month loan without option to Charlton. But the Belgian-Turkish player said yesterday that he preferred to join Turkey , where many clubs are interested. A Turkish source said Öztürk will most likely be loaned to Kasimpasa for six months.
Guy Luzon also said goalkeeper Yohann Thuram is the only major player likely to leave Standard during the winter transfer window. Many Ligue 1 clubs where the goalkeeper still enjoys a large popularity are interested but in pole position at the moment is none other than ... Charlton ! It would be a free loan option: Standard understands that the player needs game time, which was not possible due to a combination of circumstances, but is not willing to let go permanently.
Astrit Ajdarevic is already officially on loan for six months, after Yohann Thuram, there are other Standardman possibly likely to join the London club before the end of the winter transfer window. Charlton need a striker and Standard have two who could possibly go on loan to Charlton. They are Dudu Biton and Reza Ghoochannejhad (the Iranian player we have discussed on this blog before).
