Beşiktaş encounters troubles during transfer negotiations with Dnipro

Updated: December 27, 2015

Beşiktaş continue their negotiations with Dnipro over the pair of central defender Douglas Silva and goalkeeper Denys Boyko. While the Black Eagles have reached an agreement on all terms with the duo, the transfer fee demanded by Dnipro still seems to be an obstacle.

Earlier we reported that the club has reached an agreement with Boyko and Douglas, with the players even accepting a lower annual wage to speed the transfer up. Beşiktaş only wanted to offer Dnipro € 6 million, while the Ukrainians insist on a transfer fee of € 8 million. Beşiktaş are reportedly still having difficulties in the negotiations with general director Andrey Stetsenko, however it is also being reported that club owner Ihor Kolomoyskyi is being easier and more moderate. According to Milliyet, president Fikret Orman has gone to Ukraine to conclude the transfer of Boyko and Douglas.

Meanwhile Spanish club Sevilla is reported to be also interested in transferring goalkeeper Boyko this upcoming transfer window. Beşiktaş officials in Germany are awaiting the news from Ukraine to make a definitive decision on the transfer of alternative goalkeeper René Adler of HSV.

Dnipro head coach Myron Markevych has made a statement on account of Beşiktaş agreeing terms with defender Douglas, saying: “Douglas has made his decision and wants to continue his career in a different country. I know there are some offers from Brazil, but I don’t know in which stage the negotiations are. I also don’t know if Douglas wants to go to Brazil. The only thing I know is that he wants to continue his career in a different league.”
