Ankara - Eskisehirspor midfielder Raheem Lawal will today
complete a 3.5 million euro move to Turkish giants Besiktas.
The Nigeria international has been pushing for a move away
from Eskisehirspor all summer long and that has led to a breakdown in
relationship between him and supporters of the club, who are angry at his open
desire to leave the team.

The 25 year old has been in Turkey since 2012 and Besiktas
will be his fourth team in the country, after spells at Adana Demirspor, Mersin
Idmanyurdu and Eskisehirspor.
Comfortable as either a defensive or offensive midfielder,
he was a subject to a move to Serie A giants Roma but the transfer never saw
the light of the day.
His move to Besiktas will aid his international career with
Nigeria where he has been on the outer since starring in Nigeria ill-fated 2-2
draw against South Africa that saw the Super Eagles fail to qualify for the
Africa Nations cup 2015 edition.For
