Mikel rejects ‘massive’ Turkish deals

Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel has reportedly rejected two massive deals from a pair of Turkish clubs to remain with Chelsea.
The midfielder has enjoyed a revival in his career under caretaker manager Guus Hiddink, re-establishing himself as a regular since the departure of Jose Mourinho from Stamford Bridge.
According to reports, Galatasaray were willing to offer Mikel wages of £110,000-per-week to leave the Blues in January.
It is understood that Fenerbahce were also tabling such money and both could go back in for him when the transfer window reopens in the European summer.
However, the Nigerian wants to remain with Chelsea and is eager to renew his contract with the club. His current deal in West London expires at the end of next season.
It is not yet known whether Mikel will figure in the plans of incoming coach Antonio Conte.
