Emirates hero off to Turkey.
Arsenal have agreed a £4million fee for defender Emmanuel Eboue with Galatasaray.
The 28-year-old ends six years in north London after he struggled to get into the first-team last season.
The Ivory Coast international signed a four-year contract with Gala on a deal the Turkish club claims is initially worth £3million.
Eboue found himself down the pecking order at Arsenal last season when he managed just 13 league appearances and his exit loomed likely as he remained out of favour in pre-season.
His departure seemed ineveitable following the decision not to award him a squad number for this campaign.
His departure comes a day after Cesc Fabregas completed his protracted move to Barcelona while Samir Nasri is also expected to leave before the transfer window ends.
Eboue made 216 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal and scored 13 goals.
“Arsenal have agreed terms with Turkish side Galatasaray for the transfer of Emmanuel Eboue,” a statement on the Premier League club’s website read.
“Everyone at Arsenal thanks Manu for his contribution towards the club and wishes him the best of luck for the future.”
