Mohamed Elneny could join Turkish side Trabzonspor, according to reports from the Turkish press (via Sport Witness).
The Egyptian international spent last season with Besiktas, but relations soured over unpaid wages, although he did make 36 appearances as the Istanbul side finished third in the Super Lig.

Meanwhile, young midfielder Ben Sheaf is set to join Coventry City after Arsenal accepted a bid from the Championship side, and our youth correspondent Jeorge Bird reports that FA Cup medal winner Matt Smith could join Swindon Town on loan.
The 19 year old has never made a first team appearance for the club, but has more medals to his name than Harry Kane.
