Jermaine Jones is headed to Besiktas on loan
   January 30, 2014 (10:26 AM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

Jermaine Jones has a new home for the next few months after having a falling out with Schalke.  The 32-year-old is headed to Turkey to play for Besiktas on a loan for the next six months with Besiktas having the option to buy him permanently through the 2015-16 season after the loan ends this summer.  Greg Seltzer has some of the numbers for the deal right here and Jones posted a photo of himself in his new shirt on Twitter.

Jones has played in 129 league games for Schalke since joining the club in 2007 and has appeared in 14 games so far in 2013-14 before leaving the club during their winter camp in search of a new team.

Besiktas are currently in fourth place of the 18-team Turkish Super Lig, which is the last of the league’s two Europa League spots, and is only four points shy of second place and the league’s Champions League qualifier spot.

Besiktas wikipedia fun fact: They are one of three Turkish clubs who have never been relegated before.

    Not a bad move, but not as good as Schalke. If he’s guaranteed to play, though, I’m cool with it. Lets face it, at 31, he isnt going to “develop” any more. Would’ve been fine with him landing in MLS–just don’t know that any team would’ve paid as much as he or Schalke wanted for a holding mid.

    Another besiktas fun-fact, before the seahawks and chiefs took the stadium noise record, it was galatasaray with a crowd of 60,000 fans in a planned roar. Before that, it was besiktas with a crowd of 30,000. Should be a fun place to play, and he should excel in the superlig’s heavy style.
