Former Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has uploaded a video of himself arriving in Istanbul ahead of his transfer to Fenerbahce.

The 32-year-old looked extremely happy as he touched down in the Turkish capital as his much anticipated move to Fenerbahce comes to an end.

Ozil moved to the Turkish club in the January transfer window after being exiled at Arsenal by manager Mikel Arteta who left him out of his Premier League squad.

More than 300,000 Fenerbahçe fans watched Mesut Özil’s flight from London to Istanbul live on Sunday night such is the anticipation of his arrival.

He didn’t cut all ties from Arsenal though as he sent them a message of good luck ahead of the Gunners Premier League game against Newcastle United.

Ozil’s contract was set to expire in the summer and Arsenal were desperate to get him off their wage bill after the World Cup winner signed a monster deal worth £350,000-a-week in Arsene Wenger’s final season.

Ozil moved to Arsenal in 2013 from Real Madrid for a then club record £42.5m and has gone on to make 254 appearances and scoring 44 goals.
