Turkey return on the cards for Fabri
Besiktas are looking to re-sign former goalkeeper Fabri from Fulham this summer, reports claim.
Spanish shot-stopper Fabri made the switch to Craven Cottage from Besiktas last summer on a three-year deal, with the option for a further 12 months, but he has only made two Premier League appearances, both of which came at the start of the season.
The Cottagers are expected to drop down to the Championship, with the club 13 points from safety, and several players are being tipped to head out the exit door in the upcoming transfer window.
Fabri, 31, is one of those expected to depart and former employers Besiktas, who are sitting third in Turkey's Super Lig, are eager to acquire his services for a deal worth around £2million.
The Black Eagles will not be making Loris Karius' loan move from Liverpool into a permanent deal after some disappointing performances and the Fulham keeper is top of their list to take the number one spot.
It is also claimed a loan move for Fabri is being discussed if the two clubs are unable to come to an agreement on a transfer fee.
