American forward Jozy Altidore is being loaned from Spain's Villarreal to defending Turkish champion Bursaspor for the rest of the season.

Altidore said Monday on his Twitter account that he is being loaned to Bursaspor for six months, a move confirmed by his agent, James Grant Sports.

Altidore has appeared as a substitute in two league matches this season for Villarreal, which loaned Jefferson Montero to Levante on the last day of the January transfer window. Altidore's only goals for the Yellow Submarine this season were both against Poli Ejido in the fourth round of the Spanish Copa del Rey.
