It's been reported in Turkey and France that the striker is in Istanbul to discuss his move to the Turkish club. With it being reported the 30-year-old will be reportedly signing a three-year contract.
The player had offers in France and Germany it has been proclaimed but it looks like he's chosen a move to Turkey.
Whatever happens, it is pretty clear that Modeste will be with a new club by the end of the week. This will leave Tianjin Pato and Kwon Kyung-Won as the only non-Chinese players within the squad.
The transfer window is now closed in China till the end of the season so any players leaving cannot be replaced.
