Agent explains Everton outcast James rejecting Istanbul Basaksehir

Agent Ahmet Bulut has explained how James Rodriguez's move to Istanbul Basaksehir fell through this week.

The Everton midfielder was offered a loan switch to Istanbul Basaksehir, but the Colombia international eventually turned it down.

"There was a possibility that James would come to Basaksehir," Bulut assured Fotomac.

Bulut explained the details of the operation and the reason that led to it being blocked: "The president of Göksel agreed. However, the player had no intention of leaving. Normally, he would come on loan.

"He did not transfer because he thought he could find a chance in England."
