Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs winger George Lebese has reportedly attracted the interest of Turkish outfit Balikesirspor ahead of the January transfer window.

The recently relegated Turkish side are keen to add firepower to their attacking options as they look to push for promotion back into the Super Lig. 

The South Africa international was linked with a move to the club in the off-season as his contract was set to expire, but he reject the club's offer in favor of a new lucrative deal with Amakhosi.

However, his recent form for the Soweto giants has ensured that Balikesirspor boss Erkan Sözeri remains interested in luring the player to Europe.

"This is the same team that was interested in the player at the start of the season and now they have been following his progress. They want to bring him to Turkey in January," an unnamed agent told Soccer Laduma.

"It will be tough because he has just signed a new deal with Chiefs, which means he won't come cheap. For whichever team that wants him, they should be ready to pay a lot."

Lebese, who joined Chiefs from Arcadia Shepherds in 2008, has been in sublime form in the 12 fixtures he's appeared in, scoring six goals in all competitions.
