According to Fabrizio Romano, Dutch full-back Patrick van Aanholt has agreed personal terms with Turkish heavyweights Galatasaray.
Fatih Terim's side has confirmed that they have begun talks with the full-back, who has been available since his contract with Crystal Palace expired in early July.

He'll get his medicals done next week in preparation for the transfer. Galatasaray are expected to sign the former Chelsea academy member to a three-year contract.
Van Aanholt has spent his entire senior career in England, with the exception of a season on loan with Vitesse in the Netherlands. He moved to Crystal Palace from Sunderland in 2017. During his tenure at Palace, he was an important member of the team. In four years with the Eagles, the full-back made 134 appearances and scored 14 goals.
Galatasaray are planning to announce Patrick van Aanholt and Sacha Boey as new signings next week. Both deals are done, as reported here yesterday. 🇹🇷🟡🔴 #Galatasaray— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 24, 2021
Boey will sign until 2025, van Aanholt will sign until June 2024. Stryger Larsen has never been close to Gala. https://t.co/IHdYMAEuQL
