Stuttgart have reached an agreement with Galatasaray to sign Ozan Kabak a source close to the Super Lig club told Turkish-Football.

The deal was struck last night and will see Kabak join the Bundesliga outfit for a €12m fee.

The 18-year-old defender will sign a three-and-a-half year deal worth €1.8m per-season once the transfer goes through later this week.

Kabak had also been targetted by Manchester United who had scouted the young defender since October as confirmed by Turkish-Football.

Kabak was convinced to make the move with the promise of first-team action in a top-five league.

Galatasaray were keen on keeping the Turkey international at the club until the end of the season but the offer proved too attractive to turn down.
