Arda Turan has sent a message to Barcelona supporters after the club confirmed they had agreed a loan deal with Basaksehir.

The midfielder heads back to Turkey on a temporary deal that lasts until the expiry of his Barca contract, although the club can still sell him during that time.

After news of his departure was announced, Arda took to Twitter to post a message to the club’s supporters.

Arda made just 55 appearances in two and a half years at Barcelona and Basaksehir president Goksel Gumusdag has hailed his transfer as “not just a transfer for Basaksehir, but a transfer for Turkey.”
