Slaven Bilic has been appointed as the manager of Turkish club Besiktas.

The former Croatia boss has signed a three-year deal with the Super Lig side after parting company with Russian outfit Lokomotiv Moscow.

Bilic, who spent much of his playing career in England with West Ham United and Everton, guided Croatia to the finals of two European Championships during his tenure.

Besiktas will not be eligible to play in the Europa League next season after receiving a European ban for match-fixing charges earlier this week.
