He then spent time with Sivasspor and Anadolu Uskudar before returning to England with non-league Dulwich Hamlet in 2012.

Oztumer went on to score over 60 goals in all competitions and helped Dulwich win the Isthmian League Division One South title in 2012/13.

He moved to Peterborough for an undisclosed fee in June 2014 and played 58 times over two seasons with Posh, scoring seven goals.

Signed by Walsall last June, the creative schemer was named in the League One Team of the Year in 2016/17 and also received the division's Goal of the Month award twice.

He won the Saddlers' Goal of the Season accolade for his wonder strike at Bolton and was voted Players' Player of the Year by his teammates.
