Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri Joins Besiktas

Manchester, United Kingdom – Manchester City and Turkish Super Lig side Besiktas have agreed on loan for midfielder Samir Nasri, L’Equipe reports.

The 29 year old French international midfielder was not included in City’s Champions League squad.

Pep Guardiola, and coaches before him, were not keen of having him on the squad and informed him to find a new club.

Besiktas were previously linked with a move for fellow team-mate Aleksandar Kolarov but he is set to stay in Manchester. Besiktas lost star man Gokhan Tore to West Ham United this summer and Nasri would be the perfect replacement.

Since his arrival to Manchester City in 2011, Nasri has won five trophies and been involved with two different managers.
