Arda Turan to join Galatasaray

Out-of-favour Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan is set to join Galatasaray on a two-year loan deal, according to reports in Spain.

Marca cite a report in Catalan radio station Rac1 which states the two clubs have reached an agreement for the 30-year-old’s move.

Arda previously spent five years in the Turkish side’s first team, winning a league, cup and Super Cup during his stint, before joining Atletico Madrid in 2011.

Since moving to the Camp Nou in 2015 in a €34m deal, the midfielder has struggled to nail down a first-team place, but has scored 19 goals in 53 appearances across all competitions.
