“Onyekuru is no stranger to us. He is player well known to everybody in Galatasaray. We couldn’t get him here at the beginning of the season, but he is here with us now,” Terim told the club’s official website.
“He is a player that we believed in and wanted to have an important role in our championship. It’s a pity we couldn’t bring him in before the start of the season. Now he starts again with us.
“Onyekuru is an important player for us. He is a player who will make our attack stronger.”
