Newcastle United Midfielder Completes Transfer To Turkish Club

Newcastle United midfielder Henri Saivet has completed his move to the Turkish Super Lig side Bursaspor.

The Senegalese midfielder travelled to Turkey last week to undergo a medical and was unveiled at a contract signing ceremony today.

Saivet could, however, return to Newcastle United next season as he has only joined Bursaspor on a 12-month loan deal.

Bursaspor released a statement on their official website which reads: “Henri Saivet has joined Turkish Super Lig side Bursaspor on a season-long loan.”

Saivet made just eight senior appearances for Newcastle United since joining the club back in 2016 from the Ligue 1 side Bordeaux.

The 27-year-old is no stranger to the Turkish League after he spent the second half of the last campaign on loan at Sivasspor.

Bursaspor’s newly appointed manager Samet Aybaba worked with Saivet last season. The Senegalese midfielder still has three-years remaining on his contract with Newcastle United.
