Unless I am crazy (which let's face it, is always a possibility), I just saw Turkish TV showing film of Jermaine Jones walking through Sabiha Gökçen Airport in Istanbul from this morning. I think we all know what that means with regards to late night reports he was close to joining Beşiktaş, but I will get on the phone to make sure.
UPDATE: Okay, I am not crazy. Or at least so much it affects my TV viewing. I did not see this part before...
UPDATE UPDATE: And now, the club website has him taking the medical.
UPDATE³: Okay, so now Beşiktaş has confirmed to me that the transfer is complete. Just waiting to be told the contract length and then there will be an MLSS report.
