ISTANBUL, April 10 (Reuters) - Turkey's Vestel is in talks to buy the television unit of Japan's Toshiba Corp , an official for the Turkish maker of electronics and home appliances said on Monday, declining to be identified.
Vestel last year signed a five-year agreement with Toshiba, giving it the right to produce and sell televisions under the Toshiba brand in Europe.
Toshiba, a televisions-to-construction conglomerate expects to book a net loss of about $9 billion for the year that ended in March, due to a writedown related to cost overruns at its U.S. nuclear unit Westinghouse that recently went bankrupt.
