BESIKTAS club president Ahmet Nur Cebi has fired a brutal parting shot at Dele Alli as he confirmed the former Tottenham man will leave the club.
The midfielder, 27, joined the Turkish side on a season-long loan deal last August in an attempt to kick-start his career after struggling at Everton.
The switch has not paid off, as the former Spurs star only made 13 appearances before returning to the UK early for treatment on an injury.
And this led to him making the headlines for the wrong reasons, as he was pictured with a balloon in his mouth while appearing to be close to laughing gas canisters.
Now he faces an uncertain summer to see where he will be playing his football next season, with manager Sean Dyche set to decide if he wants to give him a chance or now.
The former Burnley boss has been told that sending Alli back to the Super Lig outfit is not an option.
Club president Ahmet Nur Cebi told beIN Sports: “Our contract with Dele Alli is over.
“He was a player we were very excited about when he came.
“He won’t come back. We didn’t get what we expected from him. I hope he recovers as a human.”

With Alli’s contract at Goodison Park set to expire at the end of the 2023-24 campaign, he does not have long left to prove himself at the top level.
And Dyche has insisted that the former England ace will have to improve his attitude in order to get into the Toffees team.
He said back in April: “Some of the stuff that’s been said and reported – he’s 27 and like other players, knows certain things and what they should or shouldn’t be doing.
“Forget about Everton for a minute, as a manager you can’t control everything they do in their lives.
“You can only guide people with what you think is good for them, and eventually, they have choices.
“We recommend they make good choices.”
