Former Crystal Palace striker Emmanuel Adebayor has joined Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir on an 18-month deal.

The 32-year-old has been without a club since leaving Palace in the summer but did feature for Togo in the African Nations Cup this month.

Adebayor, who also took in spells with Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham during a ten-year stint in England, was unable to prevent Togo from making a group-stage exit in Gabon.

Istanbul Basaksehir - who are currently second in the Turkish Super Lig, two points behind Besiktas - conducted a medical with the forward on Tuesday morning before announcing his arrival on Twitter.

Adebayor's last club game came in Crystal Palace's 4-1 Premier League defeat against Southampton on May 15.
