Fulham winger set for Turkish return

5th April 2019, 14:04 by Simon Barlow

Galatasaray are reportedly ready to take Ryan Babel back to Turkey when he leaves Fulham at the end of the season.

The Istanbul giants are rumoured to have secured an agreement with the Dutchman over a contract worth 2.5m euros a year.

The 32-year-old joined Fulham from Besiktas in January with the Cottagers effectively taking over the final six months of his contract with the Black Eagles - bitter rivals to Galatasaray.

He will be out of contract and free to move on in the summer with Fulham unlikely to try to match any offer from Turkey as they prepare for life in the Championship once more.

Ex-Liverpool star Babel has scored three goals and assisted three more since his arrival in January.

Babel will replace Henry Onyekuru, who is set to return to his parent club Everton following his loan spell with Galatasaray.
