De Jong told the official club website, “I’m very happy to be here. I could have been here last year but it didn’t happen. The people here are great.

“I know Galatasaray is trying to avoid a season like last. A huge club like Galatasaray should always be aiming for the title.”

De Jong departs LA Galaxy after only 14 appearances in seven months with the club. He will reunite with former Ajax teammate Wesley Sneijder in Istanbul and will be aiming to win back his place in the Dutch national team.
