"I want one transfer for both. More than one thing has to happen for this deal. When a club wants a player it depends on how much [Besiktas] want to sell a player and how much they are asking.

"There is a lot written in the Turkish press that is untrue. But I know them [Tore and Hutchinson], I spent two years with them."
