Galatasaray have signed Roma midfielder Ahmed Barusso on-loan to the end of the season.

"I need to play so I am going to leave," the Ghana ace told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I lost a year due to my leg injury and the recovery process was slow and painstaking, so now I'm back I need to be playing regularly. At Galatasaray I will get the opportunities I want.

"I would like to come back soon and play for a place in the Giallorossi side, but to do that I will need to regain full condition."
