World Football - Atletico's Emre in Fenerbahce return talks

Fenerbahce have announced Atletico Madrid midfielder Emre Belezoglu is in talks to return to the Turkish club.

Talks have begun on a possible deal to send Emre back to Sukru Saracoglu after heading to Madrid on a free transfer in the summer.

The 32-year-old has only featured for his new employers seven times in La Liga, also playing in all six of their Europa League group clashes.

Atletico appear happy to negotiate a return home for the Turkish international, but are reluctant to cave into Fenerbahce’s requests that they terminate his contract – which has 18 months left to run – to enable a free transfer.

The Europa League holders could lose another player to the Turkish Liga, with Dimingo ‘Cisma’ Gonzalez in talks to join Besiktas on a two-and-a-half year contract.
