Following the decision, Frei told reporters, "My father was born in Bayrampaşa [Istanbul], he migrated to Switzerland due to economic hardships but would always take me to Istanbul for Bayram [Eid] holidays and festivals.
"Bayrampaşa has always had a special place in my heart.
"I am an ambitious person and aim to do well in England, I can play in any midfield position and on the wings as I can use both feet well.
"My father who is Turkish and my mother who is Moroccan advised me to play for the Turkish national team despite having represented Switzerland at U-19 level" Frei said.
