 Turkey's Besiktas seals deal with Atletico Madrid's Simao

Turkey's Besiktas has sealed a deal with Atletico Madrid's Portuguese winger Simao Sabrosa, the soccer club said in a statement on Thursday.

Besiktas said that club officials agreed on a two-and-an-half-year contract with the Portuguese player and would pay 2.2 million euro for the 2010-2011 half season and a total of 5 million euro for the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 seasons. The club will also pay 900 thousand euro to Atletico Madrid to terminate its contract with Simao.

Simao is expected to come to Istanbul in January.

The club is also trying to reach an agreement with another Portuguese player, Hugo Almeida, in a move to back up the team.

31-year-old Simao joined Atletico Madrid from Benfica in 2007, becoming one of the club captains, and previously had stints with Barcelona and Sporting Lisbon.
