Liverpool wonderkid Samed Yesil: Yes I have an offer, but I don't want to leave

Young Liverpool striker Samed Yesil has confirmed he has a chance to leave the club, but does not want to.

Liverpool under-21 striker Samed Yesil has confirmed he has an offer to leave the club this summer.

Yet the youngster states he is reluctant to leave Liverpool.

Yesil is quoted by TurkishFootball.com: "Trabzonspor have made an offer to Liverpool,.

"However, I have not entered talks with Trabzonspor yet. It's an honour to be associated with Trabzonspor but I don't want to leave Liverpool either."

Yesil signed for Liverpool in the summer of 2012 for £2 million, and has one first team appearance to his name in the League Cup.

His progress has been stunted by a cruciate knee ligament injury which kept him out of action for almost a year, but at 19-years-old he has reason to be positive, and scored in one of the four under-21 games he played since his comeback.

Breaking into the Liverpool first team will not be easy, with Fabio Borini returning from loan and Rickie Lambert signed, to support Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez.

Nevertheless if he gets a full injury-free season of action in the under-21s or even secures a loan move mid-season, this time next year his prospects may look a little different.

His comments do suggest that he is not entirely opposed to a move to Turkey, a country along with Germany he is eligible to play international football for.

If Liverpool accepted the offer from Trabzonspor and Brendan Rodgers wanted to move him on, a move is very possible; it just depends whether the manager retains the faith he has since he bought him, or decides a fresh start is in the player's best interests.
