Ryan Babel makes the season almost as good as at Fulham. The Orange striker is about to be hired from Besiktas, which is struggling with financial problems.

According to various media, including VI and De Telegraaf , the former Ajax player is medically inspected on Tuesday. If that does not cause any problems, Babel will play for the nineteen of the Premier League in the next six months.

The 32-year-old Babel is in that case the second big earner who leaves at Besiktas. Previously, Pepe had already canceled his contract in Turkey. The Portuguese has now found refuge at his old club FC Porto.

The Turkish top club had Babel, whose contract expires after this season, happy in Istanbul. Both parties talked about contract extension, but did not come out. With the upcoming transition to Fulham, there will also be an end to his stay in Turkey.

For the attacker, it will be the second time he will play in the Premier League. Babel played for Liverpool from 2007 to 2011, which took him from Ajax. He then played for Hoffenheim, again Ajax, Al-Ain, Deportivo La Coruña and thus Besiktas.

Babel must protect Fulham from being degraded. The team of coach Claudio Ranieri only has Huddersfield Town. The deficit at number seventeen Cardiff City is five points.
