Besiktas deny having agreed terms with Chelsea keeper

Beşiktaş have released a statement on their official website denying reports that an agreement has been reached with Chelsea over goalkeeper Petr Cech.

The statement read: “Today a number of newspapers have published articles claiming Petr Cech came to Istanbul to agree terms with Beşiktaş but these rumours do not reflect the truth. The club is solely focused on the title race.”

The Black Eagles have released two similar statements in the past regarding Cech.

Beşiktaş are however, still reported to be in negotiations with Chelsea over the Czech Republic international in the Turkish press.

The Black Eagles were reported to have reached an agreement with Chelsea to co-operate between the first teams, academies, training support and joint scouting projects earlier in the season.

Beşiktaş have reached an agreement to play their inaugural game at the Vodafone Arena against Chelsea according to Fanatik.


The Black are in the market for a new goalkeeper due to continuous injury problems and high profile mistakes from first-choice keeper Tolga Zengin.

The Black Eagles are currently playing their third choice keeper in goal following injuries to Zengin and Cenk Gönen.

Cech has struggled for playing time this season after falling down the pecking order behind Thibaut Courtois but still has one year left on his contract.
