Although Fulham have a lot to worry about at this stage of the season, one of their players is making some noise in Turkey which the club may not even be aware of.
That’s because, according to Hurriyet, Ryan Babel has already agreed a deal with a new Turkish side for next season.
The player, who belongs to Besiktas and is currently having a loan spell at Fulham, would have called his agent and authorised a deal with league rivals Galatasaray.
The move is conditioned on the Whites’ relegation in the Premier League, which looks very likely by now, and that’s why this news is so important for both Turkish clubs.
Besiktas don’t really feel like keeping Babel in the squad for next season, and since Galatasaray are returning Henry Onyekuru to Everton, Babel would arrive as his replacement.
But for the move to happen, as we’ve just said, Fulham would have to be relegated. Maybe that means he’s staying in London in case the Craven Cottage side manage to keep themselves in the Premier League.
