Leicester winger Ghezzal says focus on Besiktas: Though Fiorentina return could happen

Leicester City winger Rachid Ghezzal says his focus is on completing his loan with Besiktas.

Ghezzal has impressed this season in Turkey as Besiktas emerge as title contenders.

The midfielder spent last season with Fiorentina in a similar arrangement and has been linked with a return to the Viola.

But he told Fiorentina.it: “Everything is going very well for now.

"Our team is good and our coach trusts me. I also get the chance to play regularly and we are in a good position in the league. I hope we continue like this. There is no difference between Istanbul and Florence. My family and I are having a good time in Istanbul. The sports facilities here are even better.

“I would like to have stayed in Fiorentina. I felt good in this team, and I also had a lot of fun on the pitch. Unfortunately, the two teams could not get along again. I love Italian football and life in this country. Why not go back in the future? However, now I'm only focused on Beşiktaş. I hope I will win the championship with my team."
