The 27-year-old defender, who is brother of Manchester United and England player Rio Ferdinand, will be at Bursaspor until the end of the season.
In a statement posted on its website yesterday, the top-flight Turkish club said Ferdinand had agreed to the terms of a loan deal that includes the possibility for Bursaspor to buy the player at the end of the season.
