The News of the World says Toon boss Sam Allardyce will not stand in the way of the Turkish midfielder as he has yet to start a league game for the new Toon boss. Emre has spent three seasons at St James' Park.
A Turkish source revealed: "Galatasaray have made it clear they are willing to take Emre back and will move in January.
"It is all down to the fee. Galatasaray will offer around £4m."
