Turkish Football are reporting that Newcastle have been watching Besiktas midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup all season.
The report is that Newcastle’s representatives have already met with the player’s agents.
Ozyakup’s contract at Besiktas runs out at the end of June as we had reported back on March 9th and Besiktas are anxious they don’t lose one of their best players as a free agent in the summer.
Besiktas midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup – free agent this summer
In fact, in the report from Turkey in early March Rafa had already met with both his representatives and the player himself and could have a deal already set up for the summer.
The report actually said that the deal had already been set up.
The news back then was that Rafa has met with Ozyakup’s agent Kees Vos and his lawyer Alfredo Seco to get the deal agreed to.
We hope that’s the case and that Rafa can get some bargains in during the summer and get them in early too.
This report in Turkish Football is consistent with the report of March 9th – we hope it’s all true.
