Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi’s run at Stamford Bridge came to an end after the Belgian star finalised a permanent transfer to Fenerbahce on Friday night.
In 2016, the Blues were able to sign the Belgian striker despite fierce competition from London rivals Tottenham and West Ham.
He was only occasionally used during his time at Chelsea and spent most of that time on loan, but he scored the goal that gave them the 2016–17 Premier League title and was a member of the team that won the FA Cup the following year.
After spending the previous season on loan at Besiktas, an Istanbul rival team, he has now finalised a move to Fenerbahce, returning to Turkey.
On deadline day, the 28-year-old came very close to joining Nottingham Forest, a newcomer to the Premier League, but the East Midlands team could not finalise a deal in time.
Due to Turkey’s longer transfer window than the rest of Europe, Fenerbahce was given the opportunity and moved quickly to complete a deal.
