Beşiktaş players in the last year of their contracts

Updated: September 5, 2015

Several Beşiktaş players are currently in the final year of their contract, among them goalkeeper Tolga Zengin and defenders Serdar Kurtuluş, Ismail Koybaşi and Ramon Motta.

  1. Tolga Zengin – € 1,3 million guaranteed wages
  2. Serdar Kurtuluş  – € 950.000 guaranteed wages
  3. İsmail Köybaşi  – ₺ 2 million guaranteed wages (€ 600.000)
  4. Sezer Öztürk – € 1,1 million guaranteed wages
  5. Gökhan Süzen – € 550.000 guaranteed wages
  6. Berat Çetinkaya – ₺ 400.000 guaranteed wages (€ 120.000)
  7. Ramon Motta – € 1,1 million guaranteed wages (optional one year extention for € 1,2 million guaranteed wages)

Beşiktaş will definitely be parting ways with Sezer Öztürk, Gökhan Süzen and Berat Cetinkaya. Whether the other four players will be let go is something which will likely be decided over the course of the season, based on their performance.

Editor’s opinion: I’m pretty sure that Serdar will get a contract extention, he had a good season last term and he will likely be seen as an ideal back up for Andreas Beck for atleast two more years. As things stand I would not be suprised to see either Motta or Ismail leave at the end of the season, neither have made a great impression on the new coach so far and Dusko Tosic is being preferred over both. I could see Tosic becoming the back up to a new leftback next season. Tolga Zengin may get a new deal, depending on his performance this season. There are rumblings that he won’t, but given his relationship with Güneş, he may get a new deal.
