According to Asist Analiz journalist Safak Malatya, Besiktas owned striker Cyle Larin, who’s currently on loan at Zulte Waregem, will return to the Turkish side after an agreement between the Belgian side and Leeds United collapsed due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Malatya claims Zulte Waregem had decided to activate Larin’s redemption clause and then sell him on to Leeds United for a profit.
However, after the Belgian season came to a premature halt, Malatya reports Zulte Waregem decided not to sign Larin due to financial issues, and because of this their deal with Leeds United is also off.
The Canadian striker has been strongly linked with a move to Leeds United in recent months, but according to Malatya, it seems he will be returning to Besiktas for next season.
Larin has been in good form for Zulte Waregem this season, scoring nine goals and providing eleven assists in all competitions.
His contract with Besiktas will expire at the end of June 2022, and should Leeds United still be interested they could try to get a deal directly with the Turkish club.
