Mesut Ozil Joins Turkish Side Fernabache From Arsenal

The World Cup winner has committed his future to the Turkish giants after a frustrating end to his time at Emirates Stadium

Mesut Ozil has signed for Fenerbahce on a free transfer to close the book on his eight-year spell at Arsenal.

Salient reported last week that Ozil had been given permission to travel to Istanbul to undergo a medical with Fenerbahce.

The Gunners agreed to terminate the midfielder's £350,000-a-week contract at Emirates Stadium six months early, and he has now completed a move to the club he supported as a boy.

MLS outfit D.C. United had also been strongly linked with Ozil, but he ultimately decided that Fenerbahce was the right place to continue his career, with the Turkish giants confirming his arrival on Sunday.

Ozil could be in line to make his debut when Fenerbahce take in a trip Sivasspor in the Super Lig on Thursday, but should that fixture come too soon, he will likely feature in a home fixture against Kayserispor four days later instead.

The 32-year-old will be charged with helping Erol Bulut's side secure the club's first title since 2013-14, with only three points separating them and current league leaders Galatasaray.
