The midfielder has been with the Potters since the summer of 2018 when he joined the club from the Portuguese side Feirense.

The 24-year-old made 45 Championship appearances for Stoke before heading on loan to La Liga side Getafe in January.

The Nigeria international contributed as the Coliseum Alfonso Perez outfit finished eighth in the Spanish top-flight in the last campaign.

Etebo will continue his development with the 22-time Turkish Super Lig champions until the end of the season after successful medicals.

“Galatasaray Sportif AS informed the public that an agreement was reached for the loan transfer of professional football player Oghenekaro Etebo until the end of the season,” read a statement from the club website.

“We welcome Oghenekaro Etebo to our club and wish him a successful season in the Galatasaray jersey.”

Etebo is delighted to team up with the Turkish side and has appreciated those involved in the success of the transfer.

“I am excited to announce my arrival at Galatasaray, I am looking forward to this amazing opportunity and I am happy to be part of such a historic club,” Etebo tweeted. “Thank you to everyone at Stoke City and thank you to the DW Sports management team.”
