The Nigerian striker joined Forest last year, but he has been unable to make an impact and has been left out of the club’s squad for the upcoming season.
Basaksehir finished fifth in the Super Lig last season, but they have lost their opening three games of the new season without scoring a goal and sacked manager Emre Belozoglu.
Dennis will be hoping to help Basaksehir turn their season around and get them back into contention for European football.
Dennis is a 25-year-old striker who has previously played for Zorya Luhansk, Club Brugge, Koln, and Watford.
Basaksehir are a major club in Turkey and have won the Super Lig title four times.
The loan deal is a good opportunity for Dennis to get regular playing time and prove himself in a new league.
If he performs well, he could earn a permanent move to Basaksehir or another European club.
