Galatasaray have confirmed the signing of Ryan Babel on a three-year deal.

The deal will be a controversial one in Turkey with Babel leaving Galatasaray’s fierce rivals Besiktas in January. The 32-year-old then joined Fulham on a six-month deal but decided not to join the English club on a longer contract after their relegation from the Premier League.

Babel was hoping for a club in a top competition in order to remain in Ronald Koeman’s Netherlands plans and a return to Turkey gives him that opportunity.

Galatasaray won the Turkish Super Lig last season and will compete in the Champions League next season.
