Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has denied suggesting he is close to a move to Galatasaray, Press Association Sport understands.

Quotes attributed to the Nigeria international, who is currently playing in the Confederations Cup in Brazil, have appeared in the Turkish media, suggesting that the 26-year-old is nearing a switch to Istanbul.

Yet Mikel, who moved to Stamford Bridge during Jose Mourinho's first spell as manager, insists he has made no such comments.
