Sylvestre turned down a new deal at Blackpool this summer after seeing his contract expire at the end of last season.

A number of English clubs are thought to have expressed an interest in signing Sylvestre, but the 29-year-old has opted to move to Turkey.

Sylvestre has signed a three-year deal at Rizespor after passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

News of Sylvestre's departure is a blow for Blackpool boss Paul Ince as the former Barcelona man had established himself as a key player in his side.
