Mesut Ozil signs three-and-half year contract

Mesut Ozil has signed a three-and-half year deal to join Fenerbahce from Arsenal, according to sensational reports in Turkey.

The £350,000-a-week German World Cup winner has not played a second for the Gunners this term.

Mikel Arteta left the 32-year-old winger out of both his Premier League and European squads as he appeared to try and force him out of the Emirates.

Ozil has now entered the final six months of his deal and is free to talk to clubs abroad, with clubs in the MLS and Turkey both linked with the ex-Real Madrid man.

Now reports from DHA in Turkey claim his Arsenal misery is over after he agreed to join Turkish giants Fenerbahce.
