Colin Kazim-Richards: Has been recalled by Galatasaray ahead of a move to Bursas

The 26-year-old moved to Ewood Park on a season-long loan last August with a view of earning a permanent deal with the Championship club.

He has made 20 appearances so far this season, scoring four goals, but his parent club Galatasaray have now cancelled the loan and recalled him back to Turkey.

The former Brighton and Sheffield United forward now looks set to complete a move to Gala's Turkish Super Lig rivals Bursaspor.

Kazim-Richards, who was born in London but qualified for Turkey through his mother, left Sheffield United in 2007 to sign for Fenerbahce before moving to Galatasaray in January 2011.

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
