On loan West Ham favourite Arthur Masuaku has apologised after making a huge error that cost his side a goal in a big Turkish clash.

It had been clear for some time that Masuaku had no real future under David Moyes at West Ham before he was shipped out on loan to Besiktas in the summer.

Left-back was one of the priority positions Moyes wanted to strengthen this summer with Aaron Cresswell enduring a difficult second half of the season last term.

West Ham ended up sending Masuaku to Besiktas on loan with the Turkish side having an option to buy the Congo international.

The Hammers signed Emerson Palmieri from Chelsea for around £13m as his replacement.

Masuaku’s move to Turkey has certainly worked out well for him thus far. The left-sided star, nicknamed ‘King Arthur’ by West Ham fans, has played in all 10 of Besiktas’ games this season.

That is already nearly as many games as he featured in for West Ham in each of the last three seasons.

Masuaku also has two assists to his name. But unfortunately he got one at the wrong end in Besiktas’ big game against rivals Trabzonspor.

Video shows Masuaku inadvertently put ex Aston Villa star Trezeguet through on goal with a schoolboy error as he passed across the face of his goal outside the box.

West Ham fans know Masuaku can be error-prone from his time with the Hammers.

But this one proved particularly costly with Trabzonspor taking a 2-1 lead.

Ex Everton star Cenk Tosun spared the on loan West Ham man’s blushes by equalising in the 70th minute as Besiktas moved up to third in the table, two points off top spot and one point ahead of fifth place Trabzonspor.

After the game Masuaku took to social media to apologise for his error.

“One for me today, sorry to the fans and my team,” Masuaku said on Twitter.

“We deserved to win today. The love is felt and I appreciate you all.

“From tomorrow we go again. One Love.”
