Besiktas are making an offer to former Wolfsburg and Middlesbrough manager Steve McClaren.

The People says McClaren is in the running to make a return to management with wealthy Turkish side Besiktas.

McClaren has been out of work since being dumped by German side Wolfsburg last month.

He wants a quick comeback and is on the Besiktas short-list. The Turks are on the lookout for a new boss after German coach Bernd Schuster resigned last week and McClaren is up for the move.
