The Dutch playmaker only completed a switch to Galatasaray in January, but reports are suggesting that his stay in Turkey could be cut short after just 12 months.

The 29-year-old continues to be heavily linked with a move to England, with Premier League champions Manchester United known to have mulled over an approach in the past.

Sneijder, though, claims to have been offered no indication that a bid from Old Trafford is imminent.

He concedes that anything is possible during the New Year scramble for fresh faces, but insists he is ignoring the gossip for now and is focused on helping Galatasaray push on domestically and in Europe - with his goal against Juventus on Wednesday having taken them into the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.

Sneijder told Dutch newspaper NOS: "I know only as much as you do, just the reports in the newspapers, which seem to come out every time the transfer window is about to re-open.

"It's pretty annoying when you're playing in Turkey. The people here are very emotional and passionate about it all.

"I have no desire to have to justify myself to the people every time my name is in the media.

"I'm fine here and enjoying myself, and the fact that we progressed in the Champions League is great.

"I am happy here, but you never know for certain what will happen in football."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
