Jones makes Besiktas move

30 January 2014 14:02

Besiktas have completed the loan signing of Schalke midfielder Jermaine Jones until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old United States midfielder will join Slaven Bilic's side until May as they bid to improve on a poor start to the Super Lig season that leaves them fourth in the table.

Besiktas are already 14 points behind leaders Fenerbahce.

The move appears to be the end of Jones' long stay at Schalke, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

"We are pleased that Jermaine has found a new club, in which he can realise his great sporting goals this year…he can lay the foundation for a successful participation at the World Cup in Brazil," a statement on Schalke's official website said.

"Our thanks to him for his efforts in the Schalke jersey in the past seven years.

"We wish him well in his professional and personal future."

Jones joined Schalke from Eintracht Frankfurt back in 2007 and has made well over 100 appearances for the club, including 14 in the Bundesliga this season and five in the UEFA Champions League.

He spent a loan spell with Blackburn Rovers in 2011 and also played for Bayer Leverkusen earlier in his career.
