Beşiktaş striker Mario Gómez has stated several times over the past two months that he would make his decision regarding his future after the season had ended. Having lifted the Süper Lig trophy this month, Gómez has now reportedly come to a decision regarding his future.

According to information acquired by Haber1903 the German star has notified the Beşiktaş board of his desire to stay at the club. Beşiktaş will now sit around the table with Fiorentina to finalize what is expected to be relatively easy negotiations for the rights to Mario Gómez’s contract.

Beşiktaş had an option to extend Mario Gómez’s loan for an additional season for a mere thousand euros, but this option expired on April 21st meaning Beşiktaş will now need to agree a transfer fee with the Italian club. However, because Beşiktaş now hold 50% of the transfer rights to Mario Gómez, it is expected that reaching a deal should not pose a major problem.

Mario Gómez scored a total of 28 goals and provided 6 assists to his teammates in 41 appearances this season, leading the Black Eagles to the 2015/16 Süper Lig title.
