Barcelona player Adan Turna has had his loan contract with Istanbul Basaksehir terminated by mutual consent.

Turan was in Istanbul on a two and half year loan deal from Barcelona.

According to the clubs, official website, ibfk.com.tr the player and the clubs president agreed to part ways.

The statement read:

“Footballer Arda Turan met with our president Mr. Göksel Gümüşdağ yesterday and asked for permission to open a new page in his career.”

“Gumusdag, Arda Turan, responding favorably to this demand by seeing the contract of the experienced footballer mutually understood terminated.”

Turan apparently has no intention of trying to revive his career at the Camp Nou.

He has endured a torrid time in his native Turkey. From a 16 game ban for assaulting a linesman.

Then being handed a five year suspended sentence for assaulting pop star Berkay Sahin and apparently brandishing a firearm.

Barcelona still owns the player until July of this year, but it appears nobody wants the troubled player.
