Rodney Sneijder appears closer to joining his more illustrious brother Wesley in Turkey after confirming that he had been speaking with TFF 1. Lig club Sanliurfaspor, but rubbished reports that a deal was imminent.
Wesley Sneijder has been plying his trade with Galatasaray for the last five months, and his brother had revealed last month that there were offers on the table for him as well.
Rodney joined RKC Waalwijk in the Eredivisie last year and made 28 appearances for them, as well as scoring three goals.
Reports linking him to Turkish clubs have been doing the rounds, and today it emerged in major Turkish newspapers that an agreement was there, in principle, with Sanliurfaspor.
However, the 22-year-old responded quickly to the speculation, and was quoted by De Telegraaf as saying: "Reports that I have an agreement in principle are baseless.
"Sanliurfaspor are a club with big ambitions, and can be promoted to the top division. I have had a good conversation [with them].
"I will think about it now, because there are other clubs that also want me. [But] taking hasty decisions, makes no sense."
Sanliurfaspor finished 12th in the Turkish second division last season, nine points behind the playoff spots.
