Chelsea winger to travel tonight to complete long-awaited

Sources in Turkey are reporting that Hakim Ziyech will be at the Ataturk Stadium tonight at 22.30 local time to complete his move to Galatasaray.

It’s been a torrid two years for the winger at Chelsea, with the last 8 months particularly painful. After a long spell out of form and out of favour, Ziyech had a deadline day move to PSG lined up in January, only for an administrative error to cause the whole thing to collapse at (literally) the last minute.

Things didn’t get any worse this summer. After another half season wasted on the bench, a lucrative move to Saudi Arabia collapsed after issues with his medical.

Two bad experiences in a row have meant that everyone has been cautious to report this latest deal as being done – but Turkish journalists are now all reporting that it’s a done deal. Details on the terms are still very unclear – but it seems all parties are just happy to have him move on as soon as possible.
