Elazığspor close in on former West Ham right back Julien Faubert
Elazığspor have been closely linked with former West Ham right-back Julien Faubert. The French International is expected to arrive in Turkey on Monday to complete the final stages of negotiations.
The 28-year-old fullback was released by West Ham following the end of his contract.
The Hammers signed Faubert from Bordeaux in 2007 for £6.1 million on a five-year contract. Faubert made 121 appearances for West Ham and secured a brief spell on loan with Real Madrid in 2009.
Elazığspor marked their return to the top-flight after an eight year absence following their promotion from the Bank Asya league.
