Ankara, Jan 21 (IANS) Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder has agreed to join Turkey's Galatasaray sport club from Italian giants Inter Milan, Turkish Daily News reported Monday, confirming that he would arrive at Istanbul for a medical examination.

Earlier this month, Galatasaray announced an agreement with Inter on the transfer of the midfielder, said the report, adding that the club and fans had been waiting for the answer for weeks, reports Xinhua.

The contract is reported to be three and a half years and worth 5 million euros ($6.66 million) per season.

Sneijder had helped Inter to win the the Italian League and Cup and the Champions League in 2010 before falling out favour since the departure of coach Jose Mourinho.

He has played in just five matches under coach Andrea Stramaccioni this season. Despite a disappointing campaign, the Dutchman remains one of the highest-profile midfielders today.
