HENRY Onyekuru’s move to Galatasaray is now in the bag, with the Turkish Super Lig champions announcing his temporary transfer from Monaco on Sunday afternoon following a successful medical.

  The signing ceremony which was held at Florya Metin Oktay Facilities was attended by Galatasaray President Mustafa Cengiz and Vice President Abdurrahim Albayrak.

  Galatasaray have paid Monaco a loan fee of 750,000 euros for the services of Onyekuru and the winger will earn 650,000 euros (N253.5 million) for the second half of this season, informs the official website.

  In his first words after signing the deal, Onyekuru said : “I am very happy to return to my house. This is my house. I hope we’ll be champions. I am very pleased and excited to be here.”

  Galatasaray President Cengiz confirmed that the Nigeria international rejected other offers in favour of a return to the Istanbul club.

  Onyekuru helped the Lions win the League and Cup whilst on loan from Everton last season, scoring 16 goals in 44 games across all competitions while producing six assists.
