Beşiktaş beat Galatasaray 2-1 at the Atatürk Olympic stadium in the Istanbul derby to overtake Fenerbahçe and move into first place in the Super league table.

Galatasaray opened the scoring when Wesley Sneijder capitalised on a goalkeeping error by Günay but Mario Gomez was on hand to rescue his team with a thunderbolt of a shot from outside the box to equalise just a minute later.

Second half substitute Kerim Frei was on hand to setup fellow sub Gökhan Töre with a late winner to record a memorable derby victory.

The 22-year-old now has two goals and two assists in all competitions for the Black Eagles this season.

Frei has managed to attract interest from West Brom following a strng of impressive results.

The Baggies are reported to be plotting a loan move for Frei if their attempt to sign QPR winger Matt ­Phillips for £7 million falls through according to the Mirror.

 

Frei is of course no stranger to top-flight football in England as he rose through the ranks of the Fulham academy before his move to Turkey two-years ago.
