Aras Özbiliz is training with Willem II ahead of a loan move from Turkish side Besiktas.

The Tilburg club confirmed that the former Ajax player was already training with the squad ahead of a loan move which will be official when the paperwork is completed.

Özbiliz came through the Ajax academy and made 26 league appearances for the club before spells with Kuban Krasnodar, and Spartak Moscow. He joined Besiktas in 2016 but has barely featured in Turkey and has had loan spells with Rayo Vallecano and Sheriff Tiraspol.

The Armenian has no future in Turkey and has been given permission to discuss a transfer to Willem II which is initially a loan but may include a permanent clause.
