Contract talks between Besiktas and Hutchinson stall
Contract negotiations between Besiktas and Atiba Hutchinson have hit a stumbling block as the Black Eagles are unwilling to meet the Canadian international’s demands.
According to the Turkish newspaper Fanatik, Besiktas have offered the 32-year-old a one and a half year deal at €1.75 million pear season.
However, the combative defensive midfielder has asked for a three year deal along with a €250,000 signing on fee. Atiba can enter direct talks with other clubs as his contract is set to run out at the end of the season.
Atiba joined Besiktas on a free transfer from PSV Eindehoven in July 2013. The 32-year-old has played a key role in Besiktas’s season. The Black Eagles currently find themselves in second place in the league with 35 points in 16 games.
The former FC Copenhagen player has made 25 appearances for Besiktas this season.
Atiba has 68 Canadian international cap.
