Galatasaray have signed winger Hakim Ziyech on a season-long loan from Chelsea with an option to buy.
The Turkish club have paid a loan fee of £3million for Ziyech, and will pay a further £2.4 million if they wish to make the move permanent next summer.
Ziyech appeared in the stands at RAMS Park after Galatasaray beat Trabzonspor 2-0 and led a chant from supporters.

The 30-year-old put his finger over his lips, with the crowd going silent before subsequently bursting into life.
Ziyech stood on scaffolding as he conducted the crowd and he was later seen on the pitch wearing a Galatasaray shirt and scarf.
In January Ziyech had been set to join Paris Saint-Germain on loan but the move didn't materialise due to a paperwork problem.
Then in June Ziyech was poised to sign for Al-Nassr but the deal was unable to take place due to a knee problem detected during his medical.
The Morocco international joined Chelsea from Ajax in 2020 but endured a lot of frustration during his time at the club.
In total Ziyech made 104 appearances for Chelsea and scored 14 goals, while he provided 13 assists.
Ziyech won the Champions League during his first season at Chelsea but was an unused substitute in the final against Manchester City.
