After securing his departure from Arsenal, the 32-year-old has penned a three-and-a-half year deal with the Super Lig club.

Ozil has been used to wearing the famous number 10 jersey for club and country in recent years, but he will now don the number 67.

According to Bild, The 67 stands for Zonguldak, which is a region of the Black Sea where the midfielder's grandparents originate from.

The 2014 World Cup winner already joined his new teammates for training ahead of Monday night's league clash against Kayserispor.

Ozil also bid farewell to the Gunners, where he spent seven years as a player after joining from Real Madrid.

“I’d like to thank the club for this amazing journey over the past seven-and-a-half years. The support I have felt from the team and fans during my time here has been truly incredible and something I will always be grateful for," he told the Arsenal website.

Together we won trophies for the first time in years and created memories that will last a lifetime. The Arsenal fans will forever remain in my heart. I’d like to thank Edu Gaspar for helping bring about a professional and dignified solution in the past few days, and I wish everyone at the club the best in their attempt to continue to bring Arsenal back to the top, where we belong.”
