Tottenham midfielder Giovani dos Santos has joined Galatasaray on loan for the remainder of the season, the Turkish club have announced.
The highly-rated young Mexican has been unable to make his mark at White Hart Lane and will now spend the remainder of the campaign with Gala.
As revealed by Sky Sports News on Tuesday, the Turkish giants were eager to secure Giovani's services and a deal has now been completed.
The 20-year-old was tipped to make a big impact in the Premier League following his arrival from Barcelona in summer 2008, but he was unable to force his way into either Juande Ramos or Harry Redknapp's plans.
He impressed during a loan spell at Ipswich in the closing stages of last season and Roy Keane was interested in a similar arrangement this term.
But Galatasaray have won the race for the Mexico international's services after completing a loan move with a view to a reported permanent switch.
