LONDON, Jan 21 (Reuters) - The European Union's lending arm, the European Investment Bank, expects to keep its lending heavily restricted in Turkey this year, as an EU row with Ankara over oil and gas drilling off Cyprus rumbles on.

Asked about the EIB's lending restrictions, a spokesman for the bank told Reuters it would continue to act "in line with the approach adopted by EU Member States and the EU Commission."
