Didier Drogba looks to be heading to Galatasaray on a contract running until the summer of 2014.

According to Turkish broadcaster Lig TV, the Ivorian hitman, who is currently at the African Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast, is making the move to the Turk Telekom Arena.

Drogba has most recently been with Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai Shenhua, who he joined following the expiration of his contract with Chelsea at the end of last season.

The 34-year-old will join Wesley Sneijder at the Turkish champions, with the Dutch playmaker having signed from Inter earlier this month.


Sneijder should make his debut for Fatih Terim’s men this evening, when Galatasaray host Besiktas in a crucial Turkish Super Lig game.

Galatasaray are currently top of the table, with Besiktas trailing in second.
