Besiktas reach Liverpool loan agreement for Benteke

Besiktas have reportedly come to an agreement over a loan deal for Liverpool's Christian Benteke.

Turkish outlet Lig Tv reports that the Istanbul powerhouse are eager to push through a deal for Belgian striker Benteke who is unwanted by the Reds.

It is understood that Besiktas president Fikret Orman has travelled to Merseyside for talks with Liverpool over a temporary transfer which would see them pay the Anfield club around £3million.

Benteke's name has been linked with a number of clubs this summer but nobody has been able to match Liverpool's £32m asking price for the 25-year-old who struggled in his debut season as a Reds player after moving from Aston Villa last summer.
