Mario Gomez joins Besiktas
Mario Gomez has completed his move from Fiorentina to Besiktas. The 30-year-old striker joins initially on loan but there is an option to buy him outright. The Germany international becomes the sixth new signing at the Ataturk Olimpiyat Stadi ahead of the new campaign and he will be a direct replacement for Demba Ba, who has joined Shanghai Shenhua.
Quaresma makes Besiktas return
Portuguese winger Ricardo Quaresma has re-signed with Besiktas on a free transfer. The 31-year-old was released by Porto at the end of last season. Quaresma, who has passed through Barcelona, Porto and Inter Milan, wore the Turkish club colours between 2010 and 2012.
Omeruo completes loan move to Kasimpasa
Nigeria defender Kenneth Omeruo has joined Turkish side Kasimpasa on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea. The 21-year-old joined the English champions in 2012, but he is yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Blues, and spent last season on loan with Middlesbrough. He joined Chelsea from Belgian side Standard Liege in 2012 and developed on loan at Den Haag in Netherlands in an 18-month spell from 2012 to 2013.
Fenerbahce confirm Van Persie deal
Robin van Persie has completed his move to Fenerbahce, according to club chairman Aziz Yildrim. The fee, understood to be in the region of €6.5m, sees the 31-year-old end his three-year stay at Old Trafford. After firing United to the title in his first season at the club Van Persie has struggled with injuries and declining form, managing 10 goals in 29 games last season. Van Persie is set to fly to Istanbul on Sunday, and will reportedly sign a contract on Monday.
Karacan signs for Galatasaray
Former Reading midfielder Jem Karacan has completed his move to Galatasaray on a free transfer, signing a three-year deal in Istanbul. Karacan joined Reading in 2007 but left the Madejski last month after his contract expired. Karacan made over 170 appearances for Reading but played just 11 times last season after suffering a serious knee injury. Royals boss Steve Clarke was keen to keep the 26-year-old and had offered him a new deal but he has opted to join the Turkish Super Lig champions.
Nani completes move to Fenerbahce
Manchester United winger Nani has completed a move to Fenerbahce. Portugal international Nani leaves Old Trafford permanently after spending last season on loan with former club Sporting Lisbon. The 28-year-old underwent a medical in Istanbul at the weekend ahead of the move worth a reported €6m.
Podolski completes move to Galatasaray
Galatasaray has signed Germany forward Lukas Podolski from Arsenal on a three-year contract. Galatasaray will pay €2.5m for the 30-year old and an additional €500,000 if it qualifies for the Champions League. Podolski will earn €3m a year plus €20,000 per game. There is also an option for a fourth year.
Podolski arrives in Istanbul to finalise his move to Galatasaray
Lukas Podolski arrived in Istanbul to put the finishing touches on his move from Arsenal to Galatasaray. The 30-year-old will be unveiled as a Galatasaray player on Saturday afternoon. The German international is expected to sign a four-year deal despite the best efforts of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to convince him to stay in north London. Podolski netted 31 goals in 82 appearances for Arsenal since joining the club from Cologne in 2012. He was on loan at Inter Milan for the second half of last season, and scored one goal in 17 games in Serie A.
Nani to complete Fenerbahce move
Fenerbahce have announced the signing of Manchester United winger Nani, subject to a medical. The Istanbul club said the 28-year-old was due in Istanbul on Sunday to undergo his medical before signing for the Super Lig runners-up. Nani, who joined United in 2007, spent last season on loan at Sporting Lisbon after failing to convince Louis van Gaal on United's pre-season tour.
Van Gaal refused to consider Nani as a winger in the 3-5-2 formation he began with and attempted to convert the Portuguese into a striker. Nani replaced Javier Hernandez in United's opening day defeat to Swansea, but days later he moved to Sporting in the deal that brought Marcos Rojo to Old Trafford.
Eto'o joins Antalyaspor
Samuel Eto'o has joined promoted Turkish top-flight side Antalyaspor. The Cameroonian striker, 34, is leaving Serie A side Sampdoria after just five months. Eto'o enjoyed much of his success at Barca, where he was from 2004 to 2009. He also played for Inter Milan, Chelsea and Everton. Meanwhile, Antalyaspor stated they would recruit another "big name". They appear to have reached an agreement to sign World Cup winner Ronaldinho, 35, after his contract with Mexican side Queretaro was terminated.
Kjaer makes Fenerbahce switch
Fenerbahce have announced the signing of Danish centre-back Simon Kjaer from Lille. Kjaer, 26, had been linked with moves to Liverpool and Arsenal in the past, but has chosen to continue his career in Turkey. The defender has signed a four-year deal with Fenerbahce, who lost out on the Turkish title to Galatasaray last season by three points.
Lafferty joins Rizespor on loan
Norwich City have confirmed that striker Kyle Lafferty has joined Rizespor on loan until the end of the season. The Northern Ireland international has scored just once since joining the Canaries from Italian club Palermo last summer. The 27-year-old former Rangers and Burnley attacker made 20 appearances for City this season.
