Sky Sports went on to confirm that the 26-year-old will sign a three-year deal with Galatasaray keeping him at the Super Lig club until July 2018.

The Istanbul giants are in the market for a new midfielder with both Felipe Melo and Yekta Kurtulus being linked with moves away from the club.

Reading manager Steve Clarke recently stated that he hopes Jem Karacan will remain at the Championship side next season.

“We’ve made Jem an offer which we feel is a good one, but it would involve a bit of pay-as-you-play,” Clarke was quoted as saying by the BBC.

Karacan has missed much of the last two seasons due to injury. The Turkish international made just 11 appearances this season due to a lengthy knee injury.

Galatasaray won the league title for the 20th time last season and secured a place in the Champions League group stages.
