A footballer’s wife is accused of hiring an assassin to kill her husband after he filed for divorce after he discovering she was unfaithful, reports say.

Yagmur Asik, 27, is claimed to have paid a hitman £1million to murder former Turkish international Emre Asik, 46 after her lover Erdi Sungur refused to carry out the evil act.

Sungur told prosecutors that the assassin revealed all to him and that Asik provided a murder weapon for the contract killing, Star Online reports.

Yagmur married Emre in 2012 and has three children with him.

Turkish paper Hurriyet reports Sungur is alleged to have contacted the contract killer himself after being confronted over not being able to carry out the crime himself.

In court documents filed from the public prosecutor’s office, Sungur reportedly said: “I had an affair with Yagmur.

“She was only thinking of inheriting the fortune after Emre Asık’s death. She asked me to kill him, but I refused.

“Once she brought me a piece of meat. She wanted me to shoot the meat. I did attempt to shoot, but I squinted. ‘You can’t do it,’ she yelled angrily.”

The documents claim that Yagmur provided a weapon for the assassin and even tried to assist in finding a way to dispose of the body.

But before the murder could take place the contract killer blew the plan by having a change of heart and revealing everything to Asik.

Yagmur and Sungur now fare in custody awaiting trial for attempted murder.

Asik represented all three main Istanbul clubs, Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Besiktas – as well as winning 34 caps for Turkey during a successful career.
