DONE DEAL: Ozil thanks Arsenal after completing Fenerbahce move

Mesut Ozil has thanked Arsenal after completing his move to Fenerbahce.

The 32-year-old flew to Turkey last week and has now officially signed a three-and-a-half year contract with the Istanbul giants.

And Ozil paid tribute to the Gunners on his Twitter page.

"I'd like to thank the club for this amazing journey over the past seven-and-a-half years," he said on Twitter in a long heart-felt letter to Arsenal fans.

"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 added to the club's official 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."
