Galatasaray have announced the signing of Dynamo Kiev midfielder Younes Belhanda in a deal believed to be worth €8m (£7m).
The 27-year-old was on loan with Nice last season and helped Lucien Favre’s side secure Champions League qualification after they finished third in Ligue 1, contributing three goals and six assists in 31 appearances.
Belhanda, a Morocco international, has signed a four-year contract at the Turkish Super Lig club and becomes manager Igor Tudor’s third signing of the summer, alongside former Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis and ex-Porto defender Maicon.
He told galatasaray.org: “I am delighted to be included in the Galatasaray family. It is the number one club in Turkey, the only Turkish club in Europe that has gained success.
“Playing with (Wesley) Sneijder will be a great pride for me and I am very excited to play with very technical and good footballers.”
