Reports: Guus Hiddink To Sign Turkey Deal On Friday

The Dutch gaffer will reportedly sign a contract with the Turkish FA later this week.
According to several reports from Turkey, Dutch coach Guus Hiddink is on the verge of signing a contract with the Turkish Football Association. The 63-year-old is expected to travel to Turkey on Friday in order to sign a contract.

The former Chelsea manager announced on Saturday that he will not extend his expiring contract with the Russian Football Association and has since been linked with several clubs and national teams.

North Korea and Nigeria were already among the candidates to make a move for Hiddink, whilst Ivory Coast joined the race for the Dutchman's signature on Monday.

However, it appears as if Hiddink has now made his decision. The reports suggest that the former PSV chief will stay with Russia until the end of his contract on June 30 before signing a deal with Turkey running until after Euro 2012.
