Dutchman leaves talk of Stamford Bridge move open.
Guus Hiddink is committed to his role as Turkey boss until at least October, according to his agent, despite being linked with the Chelsea vacancy.
Hiddink is contracted to Turkey until the end of Euro 2012 but could leave this autumn if they fail to qualify.
“He is focusing on his job and he likes what he is doing,” said Cees van Nieuwenhuizen.
“Once [Turkey’s European Championships campaign] is finished, he will start thinking about his future.”

So by our calculations Turkey’s fate could be decided as soon as September 6th, after which time Turkey may have screwed up their chances of qualifying for the Euro 2012 finals. They have two tricky away trips to Belgium and Austria with a home tie with Kazakhstan sandwiched between.
There has been much talk of Marco Van Basten being a front runner for the post but given the former lethal finisher’s relatively poor managerial record, such a move would be odd, unless he was partnered by an elder statesman like Hiddink.
Then of course they is Jose Mourinho…..
