Ozil joins 2020 Turkish champions Basaksehir


German World Cup-winning midfielder Mesut Ozil signed for 2020 Turkish champions Basaksehir on Thursday, a day after he left their rivals Fenerbahce.

"Our club has signed a one-year contract with the option of another year with Mesut Özil," Basaksehir said in a statement.

Ozil, 33, split with Fenerbahce with two years of his deal still to run.

He joined the Istanbul side less than a year and a half ago but has been excluded from the first team since the end of March following a dispute.

New manager, Jorge Jesus made it clear he would not rush to overturn that decision when he took up the post at the beginning of June.

Ozil arrived at Fenerbahce in January 2021 from Arsenal, where he had been excluded from the Gunners' Premier League and Europa League squads that season. His last game for the London club was March 2020.

Ozil joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in 2013 and lifted the FA Cup on three occasions under then-coach Arsene Wenger.

The 2014 Germany World Cup winner of Turkish origins ended his international career after what he described as "racist" attacks following the holders' first-round exit at the 2018 World Cup.
