Fulham have signed Dutch international forward Ryan Babel from Turkish club Besiktas on a permanent deal running until the end of the season, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.

Shaka Hislop predicts the gap between Liverpool and Manchester City will be smaller this year, but the Reds will remain second best.

Besiktas are happy with on-loan goalkeeper Loris Karius and are not looking to send him back to Liverpool, sources have told ESPN.

Turkish sports outlet Fotomac reported that Besiktas have been unimpressed by Karius and are keen to cut his two-year loan deal short in January -- adding that they would request Divock Origi in exchange, on the same agreement with an option to buy.

This claim came on the back of reports from the same outlet that Karius would be dropped for the Europa League...

Real Madrid move for Guti to replace Julen Lopetegui would not be blocked by Besiktas

Besiktas president Fikret Orman has said he would not stand in Guti's way if Real Madrid wanted him to replace Julen Lopetegui.

Madrid go into Sunday's Clasico at Barcelona with Lopetegui under increasing pressure after taking only one point from the last 12 available.

Former Madrid midfielder Guti, who took over as assistant to head coach Senol Gunes at Turkish side Besiktas in July, is reported to be among the candidates to succeed Lopetegui if he is sacked.
