Arda Turan has completed a loan move to Istanbul Basaksehir after a miserable spell at Barcelona.
The Turkey midfielder has two and a half years remaining on his contract at the Nou Camp, but the 30-year-old will instead see out his deal in Istanbul.
Barcelona released the following statement:
“FC Barcelona and Istanbul Basaksehir FK agree on a loan deal for the Turkish player for the remainder of the season and two more.
“The Turkish International leaves the Club after two and a half seasons in which he has won everything there is to win domestically with the blaugranes.”
Turan made just 55 appearances for Barça in two-and-a-half years, scoring 15 goals.”
