Melbourne Heart fullback Aziz Behich could be on his way to Turkish club Bursaspor in the next 48 hours.

It is believed Behich, who was absent from Heart training on Tuesday, has completed his medical in Melbourne, and Turkish newspapers, including Hurriyet Daily News, are reporting the deal is imminent.

Heart general manager John Didulica told footballaustralia.com.au, "The club has received a number of offers for Aziz over the past 12 months, including a number of enquiries in January.

"We do not wish to sell him, nor have we agreed to sell him."

Bursaspor are currently fifth in the Turkish Super Lig, and have just signed Anton Ferdinand on loan from Premier League side Queens Park Rangers.

Bursaspor are reportedly hoping to have Behich in time for visit of Galatasaray on February 3.
