Turkish Süper Lig side Antalyaspor have brought Samir Nasri's six-year stay at Manchester City to an end by signing the 30-year-old on a two-year deal.

Nasri had arrived in the Turkish Mediterranean resort city on Sunday where he was mobbed by fans before leaving the airport and had to be escorted out by Turkish security forces.

The playmaker won two league titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups during his time at the Etihad where he was, for his first three seasons, a favourite.

"Our club has signed a two-year contract with midfielder Samir Nasri in concluding an agreement with Manchester City", said a statement on the official Antalyaspor website.

Nasri scored 27 goals in the 176 matches he played with City after joining them in 2011 from Arsenal, reports Efe.

Guardiola had been expected to offload Nasri this summer although he did take the volatile Frenchman on a pre-season trip to the United States.

Antalyaspor has made its ambitions clear with a host of recognisable signings after finishing fifth in Turkey's top tier last term.

Antalyaspor are captained by former Barcelona forward Samuel Eto'o. This led to Sevilla not taking up their option to sign the former French worldwide on a permanent basis.
