According to AD, De Jong arrived in Istanbul on Monday night to round the deal off and will be reunited with former Ajax and Netherlands teammate Wesley Sneijder.

De Jong has spoken about his desire to win his place back in the Dutch national team and a move back to Europe is the first step to impressing coach Danny Blind.
