The Serbia international made 34 appearances, including 11 league starts, last season.
Besiktas announce Victor Valdes deal
Besiktas have announced a deal for Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes. The 33-year-old Spaniard has been asked to find a new club by the Dutch manager Louis van Gaal after he reportedly refused to feature for the United reserves. Valdes, who was a free agent after leaving Barcelona last summer, was signed by Van Gaal during the January transfer window. Besiktas have reached an agreement for a two-year deal with the option of a third.

Marin has made just six Premier League appearances for Chelsea and has been sent on loan to Sevilla, Fiorentina and Anderlecht in recent seasons.
Mbolhi moves to Antalyaspor
Algeria goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi has signed for Antalyaspor after being allowed to leave MLS side Philadelphia Union. The 29-year-old was on trial with English Championship side Bolton Wanderers last week but has signed a three-year deal in Turkey instead. He joins Cameroon's Samuel Eto'o at the club, after he signed for them in July. Mbolhi impressed for Algeria at the 2014 World Cup as they reached the second stage.
N'Doye moves to Trabzonspor
Dame N'Doye has completed a €3.1m move from Hull to Trabzonspor. The Senegalese striker arrived from Lokomotiv Moscow on deadline day in January and made an immediate impact, scoring three times in his first four appearances. He went on to score both goals in the victory over Crystal Palace but ended the season on a five-game scoreless streak as the Tigers slipped out of the Barclays Premier League. The 30-year-old has agreed a three-year deal with Trabzonspor.
