Arsenal have offloaded Emmanuel Eboue and Carlos Vela.

Ivory Coast international Eboue was confirmed as in discussions with Turkish giants Galatasaray last week and now the Istanbul club have reached an agreement with Arsenal.

The right-sided player has cost Galatasaray a fee of around £3M and has inked a four-year contract at the Turk Telekom Arena.

Mexican forward Vela has also left the Emirates after Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger opted to send the player on loan to Real Sociedad.

The loan was expected, with Vela having been targeted by Lorient and Real Zaragoza, in addition to the Basque club.

Vela will spend one year on loan with the La Liga side if he passes his medical tomorrow.
