Transfer News

Dutch international Ryan Babel has joined Turkish giants Galatasaray on a free transfer from relegated English Premier League side Fulham.

Babel, who spent the second half of 2018-19 at Fulham, has signed for the Turkish giants on a three-year contract.

Babel told the club official website: "I think my adventure should continue like this. I am very happy and grateful to be here. I hope I can add extra things to our team. I hope I will win trophies with Galatasaray."

Babel will be joined at Galatasaray by Adem Buyuk and Valentine Ozornwafor, who also signed for the Super Lig champions on Friday.


The Netherlands international, 32, scored five Premier League goals in 16 appearances for the Cottagers, though that was not enough to keep the club in the top flight.

And Babel has now returned to Turkey, having spent two separate spells in the country before - with Kasimpasa and Besiktas respectively.
