He also said he wants to end the season on a high with a continental ticket.
"I just want to finish the season as well as possible and try and help Kasimpasa into a European spot. After that we will start thinking about next season. There is also the Olympics which I might be involved in," he told Chelsea official website.
He also rated Turkish league highly after he has featured in the Dutch league and the English Championship.
"I have already played in Holland [for ADO Den Haag] and in the Championship [for Middlesbrough] and it’s a combination of both. It’s relaxed because there is a game a week, especially if you’re not in the cup, so you have a lot of time to train and prepare for the next game which isn’t always the case in England,” he said.
"And the games are always tough. Teams that are struggling are always fighting hard. Every game is difficult but each one comes with improvement."
