The new Vodafone Arena stadium will be 41,903 seater sporting arena when finally completed but it forced Bilic’s side into becoming footballing nomads.

Beşiktaş started the season playing at the Atatürk Olympic stadium in Istanbul before trying a few other local grounds. The Black Eagles then had a brief spell in Konya – south western Turkey – and ended the league campaign playing home games in the capital city Ankara.

Bilic will play at Upton Park next season before moving to the Olympic stadium – if he is still in charge – the following league campaign.

Despite not having a home stadium Beşiktaş were still in the title race until the last three games of the season.

The Black Eagles finished in third place and booked a place in the Europa League group stages.
