Samir Nasri leaves Manchester City to join Antalyaspor
Manchester City have confirmed that Samir Nasri has signed for Turkey Super Lig club Antalyaspor on a two-year deal.
Nasri, who spent last season on loan at Sevilla, leaves City after six seasons having helped them win two Premier League titles and the League Cup.
The 30-year-old had looked impressive for City in preseason but was omitted from the squad for their opening game at Brighton last Saturday.
City had hoped to recoup around £10 million for the former Arsenal player, who had two years remaining on his contract, but reports suggest they received around £8m.
The club said on their official Twitter account: ".@SamNasri19's six year stay at #ManCity has come to an end. He's signed for Turkish side @Antalyaspor.
"Thank you for some brilliant memories, @SamNasri19 and all the best at @Antalyaspor and for the rest of your career!"
Nasri thanked the club, his teammates and Manchester City fans in a series of tweets.
He wrote: "And a special thank you to the fans for this amazing support during those years without you i couldnt have achieve anything so blessed
"A big chapter of my life just came to a end. I want thank every single person i worked with during my time @ManCity thank you pt1
"Thank you @ManCity thank you thank you
"A big thank you to all my team mates through the years on and off the pitch we shared some amazing moment because of you my cabinet trophies
"Has 2 Pl titles 2 League Cup and 1 Community Shield a big thank you as well to the medical staff and backroom staff for everything."
Nasri joined City for £25m in 2011 and made 129 Premier League appearances for the club.
He suffered a serious tendon injury in October 2015 that ruled him out for six months and has made just six appearances for the club since then.
Antalyaspor have Samuel Eto'o in their ranks and have signed Jeremy Menez and Johan Djourou, both former team-mates of Nasri.
