Well, according to Hearts defender Juwon Oshaniwa himself anyway with what he’s told HITC Sport

Hearts return to the Scottish Premiership helped to bring in Nigerian international Oshaniwa from Israeli side FC Ashdod last summer, who he left at the end of his contract. An impressive debut season is seeing interest from Turkish Super Lig teams Antalyaspor and Kayserispor.

The left back, who made 25 appearances last season (he would have played more but for some disciplinary issues with him partial to a card or two), has admitted he’s ‘flattered’ by the interest and would be willing to make a move to either club.

‘I believe there has been some contact from Antalyaspor and Kayserispor with my representative Ladi Salami. I am just waiting for the response from Hearts on the interest and if both teams agree then we will see what happens.’


‘Football is all about movement and as a player you want to progress as much as you can. It is flattering to attract interest from Antalyaspor and Kayserispor and Turkish football is interesting for me.’

Despite admitting the interest in both Turkish clubs he would also be ‘happy to stay’ too if this is what Robbie Neilson wants as not only is he under contract but the Jambos are ‘a lovely club, with lovely people and lovely fans.’

Therefore, with that in mind as well as other reasons, the 25-year-old finished by saying he wouldn’t be disappointed to be a continued part of our (hopeful) growth going forward.

‘To be part of a team that finished third in the championship and qualify for the Europa League was something special and the club wants to continue to progress. In the end Hearts will decide my future and if they do not want to sell me I will stay at the club.’
