Beşiktaş are closing in on a loan deal for Marseille’s 20-year old central defender Dória.

The Black Eagles want a physically strong and fast partner, prefferably left footed, to partner with Luiz Rhodolfo in the heart of defence and have set their sight on a loan move for Marseille’s promising central defender on a one year loan.

NTV Spor report that Beşiktaş have reached a principle agreement with Marseille to loan their player untill the end of the season and that club officials are currently sitting down with the player and his representatives to discuss the annual fee. Once an agreement is reached with the player he will travel down to Istanbul for his medical check-up at the end of the week.

Marseille paid a € 5 million transfer fee for Dória from Botafogo in August 2014.
