Besiktas, who won their 14th Super Lig title last term, are in the hunt for two central defenders this summer as they prepare to challenge domestically and in Europe next term, having been linked to Liverpool's Martin Skrtel and Martin Olsson of Norwich City.

Chelsea’s FA Youth Cup winning manager Joe Edwards has been handed a new role in which he will be tasked with finding the best possible clubs for potential loanees for next season. Edwards is hoping to land the centre-back a season with Besiktas, having made contact with them.
