The 30-year-old former Liverpool and Ajax winger has regained his form in Turkey since joining Besiktas in January. He has scored three league goals and two in the Champions League with Besiktas well placed to reach the knockout round.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Babel was asked if he would consider a return to the Premier League in the future. He responded, “I’m at a certain age where the decisions you make have to be even more precise.

“Right now I definitely feel that this could be my end station but in football you never know. One year you can be loved, the following they want you out.

“Football always, you have to be realistic. I take it from season to season and right now I definitely think I could stay here for many years.

“But teams are developing every year, one year it was Swansea that played very good football, the next it was Southampton. When it’s time, if it is there, you have to make the right decision.”
