According to reports in Turkey, forgotten Newcastle United midfielder Henri Saivet is now set to seal a loan move to Bursaspor.
The Senegalese international spent the second half of last season on loan with Sivasspor – bagging a goal and two assists during his six-month stint with the club – and he looks set to return to Turkey if today’s reports are anything to go by.
‘Olay’ claim he’s set to join Bursaspor on loan – a deal that won’t see us raise any additional funds for Rafa, but one that will at least trim out wage bill.
Henri Saivet is moving closer to an exit from Newcastle United. The midfielder will again head out on loan with Bursapor his destination. [Olay] #NUFC

He actually impressed on his one and only Premier League start for the club last season, scoring an impressive free kick in our away win at West Ham in December, however it’s been quite clear ever since that he is NOT in Benitez’s plans.
