Galatasaray are set to part ways with right-back Emmanuel Eboue this January.

Eboue has a year left on his contract and currently makes €2.2 million per-season.

The Ivory Coast international is disappointed at being forced to train with the reserves and left out of the Champions League squad submitted by Galatasaray to UEFA.

“I am disappointed to have been left out the team,” Eboue said.

“I have played for Galatasaray for three-seasons and have won trophies here.”

Eboue joined Arsenal from KSK Beveren for €2.2 million in 2005 and went on to play 211 times over seven seasons for the Gunners.

The 31-year-old right-back joined Galatasaray for €3.5 million in 2011.

Eboue played a key role in the Lions back-to-back title wining league campaigns between 2011-12 and 2012-13.

The Ivory Coast international has scored five times and provided 12 assists in 101 appearances since joining Galatasaray.

Eboue has not played a single game this season after being demoted to the reserves at the start of the season.
