Arthur all set to stay in Turkey

By Hughie Southon

Arthur Masuaku is all set to remain at Besiktas on account of his improved form since returning from injury.

Arfur…no sign of him

The Hammers loanee had been thought at one time to have blown his chances but reports now claim the Turkish club want him to remain under the terms of the deal agreed with the Hammers.

According to Turkish outlet Fanatik  the two clubs are currently locked in negotiations and in the event the full-back plays 25 games, for which he is currently on 22 appearances, a £2.5 million euro [£2.2m] purchase option will be activated.”

Injury prone Masuaku was allowed to leave the Irons on a season-long loan last summer, with an obligation to make the deal permanent should he make the 25 appearances.

Masuaku’s poor form and injury record at the Hammers saw him moved on and being totally honest there were fears that he may be sent back when the season long spell cam to an end.

But the latest report claims that after a goal and three assists since his return, it has now convinced the Turkish giants to make the move permanent.
