Alli completes season-long loan move to Besiktas

Dele Alli has completed his season-long loan move to Turkish club Besiktas from Everton.

The deal could be made permanent depending on how the 26-year-old midfielder performs in Istanbul.

Everton will get a £1.86m (€2.2m) loan fee, and Besiktas will pay just £8,430 (€10,000) of Alli's wages per game.

Alli arrives in the Turkish capital desperate for more game time after mostly being used from the bench since joining Everton.

Although there was no initial transfer fee when he joined the club in January, Everton would have owed Tottenham anything up to £40m if certain performance bonuses were met.

The first £10m would be due after Alli's 20th Everton appearance. The club would also have to pay Spurs 25 per cent of any money they receive.

The 26-year-old has made appearances in both Everton's Premier League games so far this season, but only from the substitutes' bench.
