Henry Onyekuru excited with 'new journey’ at Galatasaray

The 21-year-old will turn out in the Yellow-Reds stripes next season after joining the Turk Telekom Stadı outfit temporarily

Henry Onyekuru is excited to start a 'new journey’ at Galatasaray.

The Nigeria international was shipped out on a season-long loan by Everton to the Turkish top-flight champions on Thursday.

The former Eupen player spent last season temporarily with Anderlecht and scored 10 goals in 28 appearances across all competitions, but his experience with the Belgian side took a turn for the worse.

Following the completion of his switch to the Turk Telekom Stadı outfit, the versatile forward has taken to the social media to express his pleasure with his new move.

“I’m so excited to start my new journey with the biggest team in Turkey,” Onyekuru posted on Instagram.

“I will do all I can to help the team achieve more success. I am grateful for this opportunity.”

Onyekuru who made his debut in the Champions League last term with Anderlecht will be hoping to use his experience to help his new club as they aim for glory in the elite European competition.

The youngster could be involved when Galatasaray lock horns with PSV in a friendly tie at Stade de Chailly on July 18.
