Ex-Liverpool defender Skrtel released from Istanbul Baseksehir contract

Former Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has seen his contract with Istanbul Baseksehir terminated.

Skrtel has been released from his contract at Istanbul Basaksehir by mutual consent after suffering a season-ending injury.

The 36-year-old recently ruptured his Achilles during a league match against Kasimpasa which ended 2-2, ruling him out of action for the Turkish top-tier side.

Reports have now confirmed that Skrtel - whose contract was set to expire in June - has agreed to depart the club early, and is now likely to consider retirement from the game, says the Daily Mail.

The Slovakian had featured in 10 SuperLig matches this season, registering one assist and picking up three yellow cards.
