La Liga, Premier League transfer news: Arda Turan leaves Barcelona, Leicester’s new signing

TURKISH league leaders Istanbul Basaksehir have announced the signing of national hero Arda Turan on loan from Barcelona, with an incredible airport brawl breaking out on his arrival.

“Arda Turan is returning to his country wearing the orange kit (of Basaksehir). This is not just a transfer for Basaksehir, but a transfer for all of Turkey,” club president Goksel Gumusdag said in a statement.

Turan was welcomed by around a hundred supporters wearing orange scarves at Istanbul Ataturk airport on Saturday evening and holding “Welcome Arda Turan” signs.

However, a brawl erupted at one point between fans and the police as Turan arrived while one fan fainted.

The crowd shouted angry slogans at the police: “We are not terrorists but supporters!”
