Wout Weghorst has joined Turkish side Besiktas on a season-long loan deal from Burnley.

The striker made it clear after Burnley were relegated from the Premier League that he did not intend to spend a season in the Championship.

Weghorst has got his wish as he will spend next season on loan at Turkish side Besiktas, who confirmed the Dutch international’s arrival on Tuesday.

Besiktas finished sixth last season and will play no European football, but Weghorst will have the chance to score goals in a top flight and earn himself a spot at the World Cup later this year.
