Huddersfield Town’s Mathias Jorgensen is the subject of a new bid from Istanbul Basaksehir, report Danish outlet Ekstra Bladet.
The offer is believed to be worth €2m, which is less than Fenerbahce’s bid of €3.5m last week which was rejected by The Terriers.
Jorgensen looks destined to leave this summer and seems to be out of favour under Jan Siewart, for whom he has only played four times since his appointment in January.
Celtic are another club to have shown interest in him, but their acquisition of Christopher Jullien means that pursuit may have faded
Since signing in 2017, Jorgensen has had mixed success in Town colours. He formed a key part of the defence in 2017/18 which miraculously stayed up, but then struggled last season and eventually found himself banished to the sidelines by Siewart.
Huddersfield may want to sell Jorgensen but a bid of only €2m is almost insulting. He has proved he has quality and in a better team he would likely keep a lot more clean sheets. He would be one of the best defenders in the Turkish league and therefore Istanbul Basaksehir should be prepared to pay more.
From Huddersfield’s perspective, things may be awkward if he ends up staying as Siewart is almost forcing him out of the club. However, if the player and manager put their differences aside he could come back into the squad and have a major role to play next season.
