Adebayor joins Istanbul Basaksehir
Former Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor, 32, has joined Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir on an 18-month deal. The Togo international, who has been in action at this month's African Cup of Nations, has been on the hunt for a new club since the summer after his contract with Crystal Palace expired. Istanbul Basaksehir will be the ninth club of Adebayor's career to date.
Caicara joins Basaksehir
Basaksehir have reached an agreement with Schalke for the transfer of defender Junior Caicarag for an undisclosed fee. The 27-year-old right-back joined the German club in summer 2015 from the then Bulgarian champions Ludogorets. The Brazilian, who also has a Bulgarian passport, made 26 Bundesliga appearances, including three in the current season. Basaksehir are unbeaten atop the Turkish Super Lig ahead of giants Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Besiktas.
Castillo completes permanent move to Trabzonspor
Trabzonspor has permanently acquired winger Fabian Castillo from FC Dallas. Castillo, 24, joined Trabzonspor on Aug. 4, 2016 on loan with an option to buy. Trabzonspor exercised its option today, completing the deal to purchase Castillo. The 24-year-old has yet to score a goal in his time in Turkey's first division, although he has posted one assist in 14 matches.
Mitrovic joins Besiktas
Rijeka defender defender Matej Mitrovic has agreed a three-and-a-half year contract with Besiktas. The Croatian international joined Rijeka from Cibalia Vinkovci in 2013, and helped the team to win Croatian Cup.

Galatasaray complete Nigel de Jong signing
Galatasaray have signed Nigel de Jong, 34, from LA Galaxy on a two-year contract. De Jong made $500,000 this season, and had he remained with Galaxy, not only would he have received a salary increase into the multi-million dollar range, but LA would have been at the maximum number of Designated Players. For that reason, Galaxy have let the tough-tackling midfielder move on. De Jong reunites with former Netherlands international teammate Wesley Sneijder at Galatasaray as well as with manager Jan Olde Riekerink, who coached at Ajax during De Jong's days there as a youth player.
Lens moves to Fenerbahce on loan

The 31-year-old made 113 league appearances for Barca, but injuries limited his appearances in recent seasons. Meanwhile, defender Jeremy Mathieu has turned down an offer to leave the Camp Nou and join the Turkish club.
Skrtel completes transfer to Fenerbahce
Fenerbahce have confirmed the €6m signing of Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel. The 31-year-old ends an eight-and-half year spell with the Merseysiders after falling down the pecking order under Jurgen Klopp last season. The centre-back will be unveiled officially as a Fenerbahce player on Friday in a press conference after he passed a medical on Wednesday.

Fenerbahce complete signing of Roman Neustadter
Roman Neustadter has completed his move from Schalke to Fenerbahce after turning down the Bundesliga club's offer of a new contract. The Turkish club announced last week they had opened talks with the 28-year-old, who started Russia's first two matches at Euro 2016. Neustadter became a free agent last week when his contract with the Royal Blues expired, and he branded the Gelsenkirchen-based club disrespectful for the way they had treated him.
Fenerbahce confirm Skrtel deal
Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is on the verge of finalising his transfer to Fenerbahce, according to the Turkish club's president Aziz Yildirim. Slovakia international captain Skrtel, 31, has been linked with a move to the Istanbul-based side in a deal reportedly set to be worth €6.5m, bringing an end to his eight-and-a-half year stay on Merseyside. Paris Saint-Germain right back Gregory van der Wiel is set to join Skrtel, while striker Robin van Persie could leave Fener despite finishing the league campaign with 16 goals in 31 appearances.
