TRT Spor’s Besiktas journalist Firat Gunayer also stated Babel has agreed personal terms with Fulham and the two clubs are also very close to reaching an agreement over the transfer.

Babel left the Premier League back in the middle of 2010/11 season when he was playing for Liverpool. The player arrived at Anfield with a big reputation but failed to deliver during his time in England.

The Dutch winger has made 19 appearances for Besiktas this season, scoring six goals.
