Liverpool transfer news: Turkish champions offer out-of-favour star get out clause after Sunderland reject defender

Liverpool want to send out-of-favour defender Mamadou Sakho out on loan before the end of the transfer window according to the Telegraph.

Times reporter Tony Barrett meanwhile that the Reds want to loan Sakho out to get the defender ‘back on track’.

It is also worth nothing that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp recently had a bust up with Sakho – and that could be the real reason the club want to send him out on a temporary move.

Klopp sent Sakho home from the pre-season tour after falling out with the powerful defender following his injury.

Sakho reportedly turned up late for training, was late for a team flight from Liverpool to California last month and also turned up for a team meal late after missing his treatment session at the squad camp in Palo Alto.

The Reds have however, found finding a suitor difficult. Sunderland turned down the opportunity to loan Sakho according to the Daily Mail.

Besiktas could end up to the rescue as the Turkish champions are looking to bolster their defence and a source close to the club revealed to Emre Sarigul that a loan deal would be an ideal option.

The Black Eagles are in the market for a defender and keen on loan deals due to their current FFP restrictions and were closely linked with Sakho earlier in the month.
