Besiktas set to sign Werder Bremen defender
Besiktas are set to sign Werder Bremen’s defender Sebastian Prödl according to the German sports newspaper Sports Bild.
The report states that Besiktas have reached an agreement with the 27-year-old defender. Besiktas have reportedly agreed upon a three-year contract with Prödl which will expire in summer 2018.
Prödl’s contract with Werder Bremen expires at the end of the season. The 27-year-old defender has three goals in 18 appearances for Werder Bremen this season.
Bremen currently sit in 9th place in the Bundesliga with 34 points in 26 games.
Besiktas are third in the Turkish Super lig and take on Istanbul Basaksehir this weekend.
The Black Eagles are coming off the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of their rivals Fenerbahce. Bilic and his side have been heavily criticised for their performance in the Istanbul derby. The Croatian manager is yet to win an Istanbul in seven attempts since arriving at Besiktas.
