Leicester City forward Rachid Ghezzal is now looking likely to return to Besiktas after agreeing to terms with the Turkish club.
That’s according to A Spor, who say the player has made it clear he would prefer a return to Besiktas over a move to the likes of Galatasaray.
Ghezzal was on loan with the Super Lig champions last season and played a key role in their title success, so much so that they are desperate to have him back.
Talks have been ongoing for months, but it appeared he would be heading to rivals Galatasaray after they offered more money to his management.
That was something of a shock, but it seems Ghezzal has now turned around again after another round of talks with Besiktas.
A Spor explain that negotiations have been ongoing for some time with the Algerian star but heated up once Gala made their move, forcing Besiktas to sit down with the Leicester man once again.
They now struck a three-year deal, with the option of a fourth, with the player after a meeting on FaceTime, and will pay him around €2.2m a year but also offer Champions League bonuses.
Ghezzal had made it clear he wanted to return, and it is up to the two clubs to strike a transfer and finalise things.
On that front, Besiktas are talking to Leicester to make that happen, and the transfer is expected to cost between €3m and €3.5m.
