Besiktas release statement rejecting Man Utd claims on Weghorst


Besiktas have released a statement deny Wout Weghorst's loan deal carries a break clause.

Weghorst only joined the Istanbul giants on loan from Burnley in July and Besiktas sporting director Ceyhun Kazanci hit out at the player for appearing to say goodbye to their fans over the course of the weekend.

Reports suggested the towering forward's temporary stint could come to an end should a suitor pay a release clause of around £2.2m, thereby allowing the buyer to approach parent club Burnley.

Still, Besiktas have slammed such talk in a fiery club statement.

“After the match of our Football A Team against Kasımpaşa in the Super League, there was a need to make a statement due to speculative news in the media about our football player Wout Weghorst," it read.

“The claim that there is an exit clause in our football player's contract, stating that his contract can be terminated with a compensation of 2.5 million Euros in case of an offer from the Premier League, is fictitious.

Moving parts: Weghorst is a Burnley player on loan at Besiktas, making any move to United complicated

“However, the news that the player in question will leave the team on Tuesday is completely untrue. The initiative regarding Wout Weghorst belongs entirely to Beşiktaş Gymnastics Club.

“We also state that if there is a development on this issue, our esteemed community and the public will be informed."
