Fenerbache midfielder Ozan Tufan has missed a training session with the club today as he closes on a move to Watford.

That’s according to A Spor, who say the Premier League newcomers have an agreement in place over a loan deal for the Turkish star.

They report that Tufan did not attend a training session with his club today ahead of their Europa League play-off round clash with Helsinki.

That was because there was a ‘flash development’ in the transfer talks with Watford, who were initially linked with a move earlier today.

That report stated Tufan would be moving to Vicarage Road if they accepted a €2m loan fee and a compulsory purchase option of €8m at the end of it.

However, according to A Spor’s information, the two clubs have actually negotiated a loan deal that will see Watford pay a loan fee of €500k and have an option to buy Tufan for €7.5m.

The news outlet appears confident that the move will be going through, with an agreement in place between the two sides.

Tufan missing training would hint as much, too, with Fenerbache clearly determined to avoid the midfielder picking up an untimely injury and scuppering things.
