Only transfers and other moves this week. But don’t fault our pundits this week for looking forward to that other football.
This week deals with some players moves for the most part. The first subject of discussion goes into Karabukspor. Some players have been leaving the club due to not getting paid their wages. Besiktas is about to acquire forward Cyle Larin from MLS outfit Orlando City. However, it seems that the transfer has hit a snag. Arda Turan is officially at Istanbul Basaksehir. Robin Van Persie has now left Fenerbahce to heaqd back to Feyenoord (and by the time this episode is release it will have already happened). Moussa Sow is heading to Bursaspor on loan, but the reported fee for the loan is a bit eye opening.
