Dusko Tosic is set for a move to Guangzhou R&F after Besiktas confirmed the defender is in talks with the Chinese Super League club.
The Serbia international, who is awaiting a World Cup call-up, had been linked with a move to Guangzhou Evergrande, with a €5million fee mooted.
But Tosic now appears destined for their city rivals, where he would join compatriot Marko Perovic, following a Besiktas statement detailing this latest development.
"Negotiations for the transfer of Besiktas defender Dusko Tosic to Guangzhou R&F Football Club of China are under way," it read.

The former Genclerbirligi man played twice in World Cup qualifying for Serbia.
