Jose Bosingwa: Relegated with QPR last season

The Portugal international defender is in Turkey to finalise the move and the Dogan press agency reports that an agreement is close.

The 30-year-old won the UEFA Champions League with Porto and Chelsea but endured a troubled first season with QPR, which ended in relegation from the Premier League.

The full-back was fined two weeks' wages for refusing to sit on the bench against Fulham in December and was taken off at half-time during a late-season game against Newcastle after being booed relentlessly by the QPR support.

He now looks set for a switch to a side who have won the Turkish league six times but only finished ninth last season, although they did reach the Turkish Cup final and qualified for the Europa League.

Bosingwa was greeted at the airport in Turkey by his former Chelsea team-mate Florent Malouda, who recently joined Trabzonspor himself.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
