The player remained at Newcastle United after Thursday’s transfer deadline but it seems he’s set to leave the club. Saivet looks surplus to requirements at Newcastle as he’s not in the plans of Rafa Benitez.

There were recent reports the midfielder has agreed personal terms with the Turkish Super Lig club and that the Magpies have approved the move.
