Osayi-Samuel will now team up alongside German legend, Mesut Ozil, while also forming a fierce rivalry with Galatasaray-bound Henry Onyekuru.
The Intercontinental Derby is one of the fiercest in football history and the biggest match in Turkey.
Both teams will face off in two weeks time on February 7, with Fenerbahce currently sitting 1 place above Galatasaray in 2nd and separated by 3 points.
The last league derby between this two at Fernebahce’s home was decided by a Onyekuru masterclass.
