Babel confirms his intentions

"I will speak with my agent but because of family circumstances, I will take one of the offers I have overseas," he said.

"I haven't made a decision on which one. Everyone knows about Besiktas but there are also two other clubs that have made offers to my agent."

There have been reports that Besiktas made the player an offer he could not refuse. It is also said to be an offer that Depor can not compete with and so he finishes what can only be described as a successful spell in Spain. He finished his Depor career with a goal against Real Betis in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday night, which makes it five in total in all competitions.
