Galatasaray signed Turkey international midfielder Hamit Altintop from Real Madrid on Friday on a four-year contract.

The 29-year-old Altintop joined Real last summer from Bayern Munich on a four- year contract, but has left after one season after the clubs agreed to a fee for the player reported to be around $4 million with incentives.

Altintop played just five La Liga matches in his first season at Real. He has played 73 times for Turkey.
