Talks between West Ham's Algerian international winger Sofiane Feghouli and Turkish side Galatasary have ceased after the two parties failed to reach an agreement.
Although the two clubs are understood to have agreed a fee worth in the region of £4.5million for the player, negotiations were halted after Sofiane rejected Gala's contract offer.
The Turkish giants are reported (by FutbolArena) to have offered a salary worth just under €3million per annum, considerably less than Feghouli currently earns at West Ham.
However the offer was rejected as the player has also insisted on a similarly-sized signing-on fee, a demand Galatasary are currently unwilling to comply with.
Feghouli, who is currently in Austria with the rest of Slaven Bilic's first team squad signed for West Ham on a free transfer last summer, after completing his contract with La Liga outfit Valencia.
He currently has two years of that three-year deal left to run. Gala's Superlig rivals Fenerbahce are also reported to be monitoring the situation.
