Besiktas land Bebe

Reds winger Bebe will spend the forthcoming season on loan at Turkish side Besiktas.

The 20-year-old joined United from Portuguese outfit Vitoria de Guimaraes in a surprise deal in August 2010 and has since made seven first-team appearances. He scored in both the Carling Cup and the Champions League competition last season - coincidentally, against Turkish opposition, Bursaspor - while also proving a threat in the Reds' Reserves, for whom he scored six goals in 13 appearances.

Now Bebe's development is expected to continue after Besiktas, who finished fifth in the Turkish Super Lig last term, secured his services for the duration of the 2011/12 campaign.
