Tuncay has revealed he wants to stay in the Barclays Premier League as Middlesbrough aim to cash in on their Turkish star.
Gareth Southgate faces a summer of rebuilding after their were relegated to the Championship on the final day of the season.
Tuncay was one of the few brights spots in an otherwise gloomy season for Boro but he is now ready to walk away from the Riverside.
The Turkey international, who signed on a free transfer from Fenerbahce two years ago, has attracted interest from Liverpool and Chelsea after ruling out an immediate return to his homeland.
'My aim is to remain in the Premier League,' he said. 'But I love Fenerbahce and if one day I return to Turkey, it'll be with them.'
Southgate will lose several key men this summer, with England winger Stewart Downing and former Chelsea defender Robert Huth leading the exodus.
