West Bromwich fans rage as Best key player image drops…

West Brom midfielder Okay Yokuslu has been linked with a return to his home nation with both Besiktas and Trabzonspor this summer, and ex-Baggies midfielder Carlton Palmer would be disappointed to see the Türkiye international depart The Hawthorns this summer.

Yokuslu was a key player for West Bromwich Albion last season, making 44 appearances in the Championship as they reached the play-off semi-final.

The 30-year-old was an important part of West Brom boss Carlos Corberan’s system, operating at the base of the midfield alongside Alex Mowatt, where his ability to break up play and contribute to the build-up made him an influential player for the Baggies.

He has enjoyed two spells at The Hawthorns, having been on loan at the Midlands outfit in the Premier League during the 2020/21 season before returning on a permanent basis with the club in the Championship in 2022.

Yokuslu was part of the Turkey squad that was knocked out of Euro 2024 in the quarter-final by the Netherlands on Saturday.

He made three appearances for his country at the tournament, and will now be thinking about where he is going to be playing next season.

And a move that could happen is a return to his home nation this summer, after talks were reportedly arranged between West Brom and Besiktas in recent days.
