Cardiff City midfield ace Gary Medel is set to be lost to the Premier League.

The Daily Mail says Besiktas are hopeful of persuading Medel to leave Cardiff for Turkey.

The Chile midfielder, who cost £11million from Sevilla last summer, has an escape clause which was triggered once Cardiff were relegated.

However, he also has admirers in the Premier League, as do team-mates Steven Caulker and Fraizer Campbell.
