Hakan Sukur still wants MLS deal

His purported deal with Toronto FC has been scrapped (or never existed in the first place, according to some reports) but Turkey legend Hakan Sukur still wants to sign with a Major League Soccer team. The 36-year old "is free, available and wants to come to the U.S.," according to an individual with knowledge of the situation (don't you just love those?)

This would refute what appear to beTurkish press reports of Sukur's retirement (no Turkish reader on staff, sorry).

Sukur holds the record for most goals scored in Turkey's top division (249, according to his Wiki page) and for the Turkish national team (51 in 109 appearances). His professional career spans three decades and includes stints at Galatasaray (thrice), Inter Milan, Parma and Blackburn Rovers.
