Basaksehir confirm signing of Arda Turan

Barcelona have loaned former Turkey global Arda Turan to Istanbul Basaksehir for the rest of this season and two more, the Liga leaders said in a statement on Saturday.

At first it was established that the Turkish player was going to leave on loan for a season and a half, but they agreed to extend the assignment for an extra season.

And having found himself out of manager Ernesto Valverde's plans, Turan has been given an escape route for the remainder of his contract in Istanbul.

The two-and-a-half-year loan deal still allows Barcelona to sell Turan during that period if a club makes an offer for him.

Turan lifted one top flight title, two Spanish Cups and a UEFA Super Cup during his stay with Barcelona but now moves on to pastures new with Super Lig side Basaksehir.

Turan, who turns 31 at the end of the month, joined Barca for €35 million in 2015 during an election campaign, a signing made by president Josep Maria Bartomeu and backed by Luis Enrique, the club's coach at the time.

The Catalan club is to get variables depending on the Turan's performance in the Turkish League, while Istanbul Basaksehir reserves the option of buying the player.
