The 21-year-old left-back impressed scouts from the Turkish side while playing for Brazilian top flight club Gremio last year, media reported on Thursday.

Both clubs have yet to officially announce the move but Telles left no doubt about his future on social media site Instagram.

"Thanks for everything, see you soon," he wrote.

Telles joined Gremio last January and made 36 league starts in 2013 despite stern competition for his place from former Arsenal defender Andre Santos and ex-Liverpool full-back Fabio Aurelio.
