Celta Vigo winger Emre Mor has traveled to Turkey for talks to join Galatasaray a source close to the player revealed to Turkish-Football.

The Lions are on the verge of reaching an agreement with Mor and the club expect him to complete his transfer within the next 48 hours.

Galatasaray president Mustafa Cengiz has since confirmed talks with Mor and said the 21-year-old ‘is returning home’.

Turkish-Football quoted Cengiz saying: “Emre Mor is a really talented player but he has gone through a lot pain growing up. I feel like he is returning home but I cannot say anymore now I have to wait for the KAP announcement.”

Mor joined Celta Vigo amid high expectations when the La Liga side signed him on an £11.7m [Transfermarkt] transfer from Borussia Dortmund in 2017.

The young winger soon ended up becoming an outcast at the Spanish outfit after a number of scandals.

Mor was expelled from training and frozen out of the first team squad for a series of acts of indiscipline in April and May.
