Worrall, 27, has found his game time limited this season and was even banned from training in December along with Scott McKenna.

The centre-back did return to the first-team squad and played a minute against Newcastle.

McKenna departed on loan to Copenhagen while Worrall was linked with a move to Championship side Middlesbrough.

A proposed Deadline Day move to Sheffield United also collapsed despite Worrall reaching an agreement with the Blades.

But the defender has had his wish to leave fulfilled after Besiktas had a loan bid accepted.

The Turkish side has the option to make the deal permanent at the end of the season.

Worrall made 226 appearances for Forest and has been captain since 2021, so played a pivotal role in their promotion from the Championship in 2022.


He will join compatriot and former Arsenal and Liverpool player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at Besiktas.

The Turkish giants also possess several former Premier League stars including Cenk Tosun, Arthur Masuaku and Gedon Fernandes.
