West Ham winger Sofiane Feghouli is on a flight to Turkey to complete a £4m move to Turkish club Galatasaray.
The 27-year-old posted a picture of himself on a plane to Istanbul on Instagram on Saturday as he prepares to depart West Ham after just a single season at the London Stadium.
Yesterday he posted on twitter “Tomorrow on the way to istanbul …. Inch allah !!!”
The Algerian joined the Hammers on a free transfer last summer from Valencia. His deal included a signing on fee worth £3.1m paid over three years worth just over £20,000 per week on top of his significant £55,000 per week basic wage.
His new wage deal with Galatasaray is said to be worth £60,000 per week but it is unknown whether West Ham will continue to honour the £20,000 per week or £1m per year as part of his original agreed signing on fee.
Meanwhile, Galatasaray fans have posted missing posters of Feghouli on lampposts in Istanbul bemused at the length of time it is taking to complete the transfer.
