The Nigerian forward only completed a third loan move to Istanbul a few days ago but has taken little time to make his impact felt for the Yellow-Reds
It’s the perfect start to life in Turkey for Henry Onyekuru as the Super Eagles winger opened the scoring for Galatasaray in their Super Lig clash with Gaziantep FK on Friday afternoon.
Onyekuru quit Monaco temporarily after appearing to be surplus to requirements at the French side.
But it has taken the former Everton only five minutes to mark his return to the Turkish top-flight with his first goal of the season.
Onyekuru was introduced at the start of the second half, with Galatasaray finding it difficult to break down their hosts.
And the 23-year-old showed fine finishing instincts to send the ball past Gaziantep’s goalie and hand Fatih Terim’s men the lead against a side that had lost none of their last 17 matches.
