Meireles has entered the final six months of his contract with the Turkish side and could be on the move if he doesn’t agree an extension.

The former Chelsea and Liverpool man has emerged as a target for Villa, according to Turkish publication Fanatik, who say the Midlands club have already been in touch.

However, the 33-year-old Portuguese midfielder is reluctant to drop down into the Championship and, with Villa seemingly destined for relegation this season, the chance of Meireles ever moving to Villa Park appears highly unlikely.
