- Dennis joined the former Turkish Super Lig champions on loan for the remainder of the season
- There’s no buy option included the deal
Turkish Super Lig club, Istanbul Basaksehir have completed the signing of Emmanuel Dennis from Nottingham Forest.
Dennis joined the former Turkish Super Lig champions on loan for the remainder of the season.
There’s no buy option included the deal.
The 25-year-old struggled for game time at Nottingham Forest last season following his arrival from Watford.
The Nigeria international made just nine starts for Steve Cooper’s side.
Dennis made 16 league appearances for the Reds last season with two goals to his name.
He has been completely frozen out this season.
The versatile forward expressed his delight after completing the move.
“My first encounter with Başakşehir was when Club Brugge played against them in qualification for the Champions League,” Dennis told the club’s official website.
“My big brother, Emmanuel Adebayor, played the game as well, so we had a conversation after the game and he invited me later to Istanbul.
“I met him here, we relaxed, went to his house together, spent the whole day together. He told me a few things about the club.
“It was just in my head and then recently I received a message from my agent that the club were interested in me.
“I said it’s a nice place, I’m familiar with them because I’ve been to the stadium, I have played against them, I’ve had few friends who played here, they always tell me good stories about the people, the club, so I decided to come here.”
