Gold Coast United striker Shane Smeltz is heading overseas once more after it was announced the New Zealander is holding talks with Turkish club Genclerbirligi.

The All White has only been back with the Australian A-League club for a few weeks after walking out on a deal with Chinese Super League team Shandong Luneng in July.

Smeltz, the top-scorer in the past two A-League seasons, is believed to be on his way to Turkey to undergo a medical examination before completing a two-year deal with the club.
