Douglas set for Bursaspor

Barcelona full-back Douglas is set to join Turkish club Bursaspor on a season-long loan with an announcement expected on Wednesday.

Diario AS report the Turkish club will pay half of the defender’s wages such is the Blaugrana’s willingness to move on the Brazilian.

The 27-year-old joined Barca from Sao Paulo in 2014 but has started only one La Liga outing and spent last season on loan at Sporting Gijon.

His departure follows on from that of another Brazilian defender from the Camp Nou – Marlon Santos has joined French club Nice on a two-year long loan agreement.
