Turkish side Besiktas have opened talks with West Ham United to cancel Arthur Masuaku’s loan deal, but the Hammers do not want the defender to return to the London Stadium.

That’s according to FotoSpor, who cover the situation and how Besiktas are ‘trying to find a third buyer’ for the full-back.

They explain that ‘negotiations have started’ between the two sides to terminate Masuaku’s loan deal but no progress has been made on the matter as yet.

West Ham have reportedly made it clear that bringing Masuaku back would be a problem for them, particularly as he would have no place in David Moyes’ squad.

They’ve instead stated that if Besiktas continue to pay his wages in full they will be happy to have the player back at the club, where he will play in the reserves.

Besiktas don’t want to do that, though, and are instead looking for a ‘third buyer’ for Masuaku so they can arrange a deal for him to return to West Ham and then be sold on.

They’re yet to find an interested party it seems, but are working to find a replacement at left-back either way, with manager Şenol Güneş wanting a player there regardless of Masuaku’s future.
