The German midfielder has not played for the Turkish side since March.

Mesut Ozil has insisted he will not leave Fenerbahce before the end of his current contract at the club.

Fenerbahce manager Ismail Kartal has frozen Ozil out of his squad after their bust-up in March. The lack of game time intensified rumours around Ozil’s potential move away from the Super Lig club this summer.

However, the former Arsenal star has vowed he won’t leave Fenerbahce before fulfilling the final two years of his contract.

“I had completed my career goal by signing a 3.5-year contract with Fenerbahce, my childhood love, without even getting paid for the first six months,” Ozil wrote on Twitter.

“I repeat with emphasis; I will not end my career in a team other than Fenerbahce. For the duration of my contract, my only goal is to sweat for our Cubuklu jersey. This decision is very clear and final.

“As per the requirements of professional life, if our management takes a decision about me, I will only respect this attitude. I will work hard and always keep myself ready. As I always say, the main thing is Fenerbahce. With my love and respect to the great Fenerbahce fans.”
