Kasımpaşa winger Ryan Babel has denied reports linking him with a return to Premier League football.
“England is of course a great country to play in, and I’ll always be open for a return. But it has to be a club I feel good about. The reality is that England won’t happen at this moment,” Babel told Goal.
Babel scored a total of 22 goals in 146 appearances for Liverpool between 2007-11 before leaving for Ajax.
The Netherlands international has recently been linked with a return to the Premier League with Swansea reportedly interested according to the Daily Mail.
Babel only has one year left on his contract with Kasımpaşa and has also been linked with Turkish giants Beşiktaş as well as Galatasaray.
The 28-year-old winger scored nine goals and provided five assists in 29 appearances for the Istanbul minnows this season.
Babel joined Kasımpaşa from Dutch giants Ajax in 2013 and still has another year left on his contract with the Istanbul based side.
The Netherlands international has a grand total of 14 goals and 12 assists in 59 appearances for the Istanbul based club in all competitions.
Kasımpaşa are currently managed by Önder Özen and finished last season in 13th place.
