Turan ‘staying’ at Barca – agent

Arda Turan will be staying at Barcelona this summer despite media speculation linking him with a move away, his agent has confirmed.

The 30-year-old has been the subject of strong speculation with a move to the Chinese Super League while Arsenal have also been linked to the Turk in recent weeks.

"Arda's not going anywhere. Barcelona are happy with him and we've not spoken with any club about a transfer,” agent Ahmed Bulut is quoted as saying by Diario AS.

"The news being reported about him leaving the club annoys Arda. The board don't like the rumours either. Arda Turan will finish his contract; he will stay until 2020."

The former Atletico Madrid player scored three times in 14 La Liga starts last campaign.
