Arda Turan to Istanbul Basaksehir: Latest Transfer Details, Comments, Reaction

Barcelona have reached an agreement for Arda Turan to return to Turkey with Istanbul Basaksehir on a two-and-a-half year loan deal, the club confirmed on Saturday.

However, having failed to play a single minute of football for Barca this season, the 30-year-old has moved to Istanbul to kick-start his career.

But, as has been confirmed on Barcelona's official website this morning, Turan has in fact joined Turkish Super Lig leaders İstanbul Başakşehir.

Turan joined Barcelona in 2015 from Atletico Madrid for £24.2m but with the arrival of club-record signing Philippe Coutinho, the 30-year-old has chose to pursue first-team opportunities in Turkey.

During his time at Camp Nou, Arda won medals in LaLiga, the Copa del Rey and the Supercopa de Espana, but failed to hit the same high standards he produced at Atleti.

After his move to Barca, the authorities in the Istanbul district of Bayrampasa announced that they had named the road where he grew up "Arda Turan Street" in his honour.

Basaksehir club president Goksel Gumusdag said in a statement: 'Arda Turan is returning to his country wearing the orange kit (of Basaksehir).

Turan quit the national team in June 2017 but changed his mind a month later after positive talks with new head coach Mircea Lucescu.

On 7 December 2016, Turan scored his first hat-trick for Barcelona during a Champions League group stage match against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
