Tomas Sivok has brought an end to the mounting speculation surrounding his future by signing a new contract at Turkish side Besiktas.
The Czech Republic international saw his previous deal expire in June, making him available as a free agent.
Reports suggested he was destined to try his luck elsewhere, with clubs across Europe putting terms to him.
Sivok has, however, opted to prolong a four-year stay at Besiktas.
"We have agreed on an extension of his contract and on Wednesday Tomas is to join Besiktas at their training camp base in Seefeld, Austria," Sivok's agent Jiri Mueller told CTK.
"The best offer has won. Before Euro 2012, Besiktas offered Tomas an extension on reduced terms, but the new offer was double the amount.
"It has paid off to wait."
Sivok is understood to have received offers from Sevilla, Everton, Fulham, Valencia, Spartak Moscow, Juventus and clubs in the Middle East.
"We received one very lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia, but there was also one from Juventus," added Mueller.
"Pavel Nedved is a member of their management and he was interested in Tomas.
"However, he would have been a third choice defender there and we did not want him to warm the bench.
"His family did not want to move to Moscow so, in the end, it has turned out best for all concerned."
