Recently-departed Celtic defender Glenn Loovens is set to join Turkish club Besiktas.

The 28-year old Dutch centre-back left the Hoops at the end of last season after helping the Glasgow club to the Scottish Premier League title and is now expected to continue his career in Turkey.

SunSport reports that former Cardiff City man Loovens will sign a lucrative deal with Istanbul-based Besiktas which could net him around £20,000-a-week.
