The Director of Besiktas FC has confirmed, July 6, to Turkish media that Besiktas has signed Tyler Boyd. The transfer fee is 2.4 million euros and Boyds salary will be 1.2 million euros per year(which is close to around $NZD 2 million per year).

There were earlier reports last night from Boyds Portuguese club that they had turned down a 2 million euro bid from Besiktas and also a bigger offer from a MLS club. But appears that the Besiktas offer won through.

AS far as I can tell this is not yet official. Im not sure Tyler is in signing mode at the moment with the Gold Cup final USA vs Mexico coming up in a few hours.

If its true then way to go Tyler. Kiwi boy comes through the Nix system, works his arse off and is justly rewarded. Besiktas is a great move IMO. They are currently ranked 21st best European club by UEFA. They are also regularly on the podium in the Turkish league and regularly play in either Champions League or Europa League. So Boyd will be playing Europa league this season. Their supporters have been pounding social media for weeks now supporting Boyds signing. I expect he will get a rousing welcome when he arrives in Istanbul.

Good on him also for not going to the MLS just yet. Turkey will be more challenging but will provide more opportunities for growth. The fans over there are crazy too and if he does well he'll become a true idol.

Wow they also signed Adem Ljiaijc from Torino (formerly of Roma). Boyd will have some stiff competition but given his age and how he's performed in the past 2-3 seasons now it's the right time to try and really make it.
