José Ernesto Sosa arrived in Istanbul earlier this evening and was received by our fans at the airport.

Sosa is scheduled to undergo a medical first thing monday morning and if everything goes well he will sign a contract in the afternoon. He is expected to sign a 3 or 4 year deal with the Black Eagles.

Beşiktaş are expecting to pay somewhere in the vicinity of €4.000.000 for the services of the 29-year old Argentina playmaker who has one year remaining on his contract with Ukraine Premier League side FC Metalist Kharkiv.


José Sosa spent the second half of last season at Atlético de Madrid where he won the Spanish league championship and also featured 24 minutes in the Champions League final against Real Madrid. He previously played for Napoli in Italy, FC Bayern München in Germany and Estudiantes in Argentina.
