“Dear Leicester City fans, after four and a half special years and with a lot of gratitude, I am bidding farewell to this incredible club,” Tielemans said on his Instagram account.

“Victory and triumph, love, hope and even defeat, we have shared many special moments together. I am forever grateful for your unwavering support.”

A development is expected in the next few days with Galatasaray reported to be preparing to ramp up negotiations and make an offer.

Galatasaray won the Super Lig title for the first time in 22 years last season and qualified for the Champions League for the first time since 2013.
