He has not played since February, however, after being handed a four-month ban for breaking the terms of his contract when joining Trabzonspor in 2011.

Speaking to Leverkusen's offficial website, he said: "I would like to thank the club, my colleagues and above all the fans.

"The support was sensational, even during my four-month ban."

The 23-year-old arrived in Milan on Sunday before completing a medical on Monday and finalising the terms of his move.
