Turkish champions Besiktas have signed former Everton defender Matteo Ferrari from Genoa on a four-year deal.

It is understood that the 29-year-old has moved for a fee in the region of €6million (£5.2m), with a salary reported at €2.5m (£2.1M) for each season.

Ferrari has been capped 11 times by Italy, but the last of those outings came five years ago.

He began his career at Inter Milan in the 1996/97 season and made eight appearances for Everton in a loan spell from Roma in the 2005/06 campaign.
