Dele Alli wants multi-million pay-off as Everton loanee seeks early contract termination
By Matthew Chadder
Everton flop Dele Alli wants Besiktas to pay him off for his loan deal to be terminated early by the Istanbul club, according to Hurriyet.
The 26-year-old has fallen out of favour at the Vodafone Stadium and hasn’t featured in any of the Turkish club’s last three matchday squads.
Turkish news outlet Hurriyet claims that Besiktas boss Senol Gunes has no intention of including Alli going forward, but the Englishman has insisted he will continue to train unless he is paid his wage as well as per-match fee until the end of the season upfront.
Ex-Tottenham midfielder Alli has made 15 appearances for Beiktas so far which means he is entitled to a £135,000 bonus on top of his wage.
It leaves the Turkish giants in a tough spot as they look to find a solution for the player.

A man who had the world at his feet, Alli now finds himself unwanted at two separate clubs at once.
Many would have thought a move away from England would have benefited the midfielder however it seems his prospects have somehow worsened.
He has not impressed in Turkey and has no future at Everton.
It is clear Alli would not be the man for Dyche, and it is time for him to consider his future with just over a year remaining on his contract with the Toffees.
Alli told Sky Sports News on 1 February last year after signing for Everton, “I just want to be happy playing football again.”
It is clear that this has not materialised and despite still having so much time left in his career, any future in a top European league seems a long shot after this failed loan move.
A move to the MLS or perhaps Asia could still potentially offer Alli a route to remain in football, but one thing is for certain, his time at Everton is coming to an end.
