But the Turkish club are believed to have had their advances rejected.

The former Middlesbrough captain arrived at Turf Moor only last summer for £15m, but only made one Premier League start, scoring in the 5-1 defeat to Everton on Boxing Day.

Gibson is thought to be open to a move, given his lack of opportunities with the Clarets, having made five appearances in all competitions, including two in the Europa League - one of which came in the 1-0 win at home to Besiktas’ city rivals Istanbul Basaksehir.
