Galatasaray hope to close deal for Blackburn defender Khizanishvili

Galatasaray are set to wrap up a deal for Blackburn Rovers defender Zurab Khizanishvili.

The Georgian defender could become Frank Rijkaard's first signing for the Istanbul club, with Galatasaray director Emre Gungor Servet coming to England to try to agree a price face-to-face.

Khizanishvili, 27, wants to move for regular first-team football and is interested in the move to Turkey if the personal terms are right.
