Genclerbirligi confirm Baxter coup

Premiership

Baxter's agent Steve Kapeluschnik said earlier on Tuesday that a deal was imminent, and the move has now been confirmed by the club.

Genclerbirligi president Ilhan Cavcav told reporters in Turkey: "For a month I have spoken to various people about the coach and we have now concluded our contract with Baxter.

"The agreement that we have reached today needs the approval of the board of directors and I have submitted it to them."

Baxter announced his departure from Absa Premiership champions Kaizer Chiefs at a press conference on June 2, citing professional "tensions" as the reason.

Genclerbirligi has previous South African football connections, having been a home to the late John 'Shoes' Moshoeu between 1993-1995.
