Beşiktaş and leftback İsmail Köybaşı are nearing a new agreement according to an exclusive report from Haber1903.

İsmail’s contract expires on the 31st of May and the 27-year old international has been linked with a move to Belgium giants Anderlecht in recent weeks. However it seems that he is keen on staying where he is and a new 3-year deal worth €1,4M/year is on the table according to the report.

İsmail joined the Black Eagles in the Summer of 2009 from Gaziantepspor on a €5,5 million transfer fee. He was pegged as the successor to İbrahim Üzülmez but partially due to injuries has struggled to live to his predecessors status.

Beşiktaş are in the market for a new leftback this Summer regardless of what happens with İsmail’s contract situation. The Black Eagles have been heavily linked with San Lorenzo leftback Emmanuel Más over the past few days and they’ve also been linked with Portuguese international Fabio Coentrão.
