Sneijder: 'I'm happy with Galatasaray'

“I am very happy with my agreement with Galatasaray and I can’t wait to wear this shirt,” Wesley Sneijder told the Turkish club website.

The Inter midfielder finally reached a deal with Galatasaray this evening and will sign a three-and-a-half year contract tomorrow after undergoing a medical.

“I am very happy with my agreement with Galatasaray,” Sneijder told the club’s own TV channel.

“I can’t wait to wear the Galatasaray shirt. I know that Turkish people are very passionate about football.

“I feel in good shape and hope to already play in the next match against Besiktas. I heard a lot about Coach Fatih Terim and know his career in Italy well. It will be good to work together.

“Turkish? I hope to learn it soon...”

Inter secured a transfer fee of €7.5m plus performance-related bonuses.
